Do you or your direct reports have access to electrical panels and/or electrical test equipment? All workers who are potentially exposed to energized electrical systems (often maintenance and repair personnel) - and their supervisors - need electrical safety training to remain compliant with OSHA and MSHA regulations.

Take this highly interactive 8-hour training course to learn how to address electrical hazards in the workplace and the steps you can take to minimize them, with special emphasis on shock avoidance and arc flash hazard recognition. Actively engage in hands-on personal protective equipment scenarios, electrical test equipment demonstrations, and hazard recognition analysis. Plus, you’ll get an update on NFPA 70E requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards.

Students will receive a book of reference materials with space for notes. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
