Avoiding Electrical Hazards
This course provides an overview of basic electrical safety in the workplace. It was developed by OSHA for engineers and other professionals to identify potential risks and preventative measures.
Electricity has long been recognized as a serious workplace hazard, exposing employees to electric shock, electrocution, burns, fires, and explosions. Perhaps because it has become such a familiar part of our daily life, many of us don’t give much thought to how much our work depends on a reliable source of electricity. More importantly, we tend to overlook the hazards electricity poses and fail to treat it with the respect it deserves. OSHA standards cover many electrical hazards in many different industries, and this training guide presents an overview of many of these requirements.
