The World Wide Web is the place to start for research.  It provides a wealth of articles, safety organizations, research studies, and discussion forums.  It can provide a foundation for developing the cause of action, particularly the standards of care.

Having done this initial research, one can begin to understand the safety principles such as the National Electric Code and municipal codes that supply the standards of care, such as for buildings and the owners of premises.

Librarians for private and public organizations and personnel are government offices such as those that handle permits are helpful as a resource for  safety procedures and location of records.

Some safety groups such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) make their codes and standards available online for free.
