In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1926.400 subpart K regulations, this training is required for construction workers and supervisors who work with electrical components. This training course provides an overview of basic electrical safety for construction workers with little or limited training or familiarity with electrical hazards.
This course covers OSHA Electrical Standards and the hazards associated with electrical installations and equipment. Course topics include single-and three-phase systems, cord-and plug-connected and fixed equipment, grounding, ground fault circuit interrupters, and safety-related work practices. Emphasis is placed on electrical hazard recognition and OSHA Standards, policies, and procedures and applicable portions of the National Electrical Code (NEC). In addition, the course will cover the safe and correct use of electrical testing equipment.
Upon course completion students will have the ability to understand the severity of electrical current on the human body, recognize and evaluate actual and potential electrical hazards and reference the applicable OSHA Standard, determine hazard abatement measures, and understand the proper use of electrical testing equipment.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a total of 3 certificates. An email with an e-certificate will be sent to you or your designee immediately upon completing the course and the original certificates (8×10 and pvc wallet card) will arrive in the mail.
Includes U.S. Based support. An experienced and highly qualified instructor is available to you throughout the training process. Our toll free hotline or email will allow access to some of the finest instructors in the U.S.
Continuing Education Units (CEU’s)
This course is eligible for .08 Continuance of Certification (COC) points from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP).
An assessment of the electrical hazards must be performed for all work that requires employees to work on or near exposed electrical conductors or circuit parts. The assessment should be done by a qualified worker to determine the required safety-related work practices.
When an electrical hazard exists, the exposed circuit parts must be placed into an electrically safe work condition unless it is infeasible to do so.
There are requirements for de-energization and verification for some classes of electrical hazards. If the work must be done with a hazardous circuit energized, safety-related work practices and procedures must be followed to eliminate or control the electrical hazards.
Hazard assessments must consider equipment failure modes, possible accidents, documentation inadequacies, procedural failure, and human error.
