Do You Need to Take the Electrical Safety Training?
Electrical Safety training is required for construction workers and supervisors who work with or around electricity or electrical components. This course provides an overview of basic electrical safety for construction workers with little or limited training or familiarity with electrical hazards.
An assessment of the electrical hazards must be performed by qualified workers to determine the required safety-related work practices for all work performed on or near exposed electrical conductors or circuit parts.
This course is in compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1926.400 subpart K regulations. Course emphasis is placed on electrical hazard recognition and OSHA standard, policies, and procedures along with applicable portions of the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the safe and correct use of electrical testing equipment.
