Electrical Safety Training for Non-Electrical Personnel


Everyone working in a commercial, industrial or construction environment, works with or uses electrically-powered equipment or works around electrical power system devices. Most of them have very little idea of what the dangers are, what hazards may exist or what they could potentially be exposed to by doing their normal, everyday jobs. There are dozens of reasons workers can be injured by electricity in the workplace. This course is designed to help the non-electrical worker recognize potential hazards, how to avoid dangerous situations, how to safeguard themselves against injuries, learn the safety standards and regulations that affect them, and to know what the correct precautions are to reduce or eliminate hazards and avoid accidents that may lead to injury or death.

Course Objective

Workers can be either affected or qualified. This training is for affected employees, often referred to as “unqualified” or “non-electrical” workers. An affected employee as defined by OSHA is one “…whose job requires him/her to operate or use a machine or equipment on which servicing or maintenance is being performed under lockout or tagout, or whose job requires him/her to work in an area in which such servicing or maintenance is being performed.”
This is not training for qualified employees who are trained to work on electrical devices. This training will not teach someone how to work on electrical equipment or become an electrician.
Safe working practices are just as important for affected employees as they are for qualified employees because in the performance of their duties, they may still be exposed to the dangers of electricity. The objective of this training is learning to recognize these hazards, how best to avoid them and to work safely around electrical parts and equipment that are or may become energized.


Applicable Personnel

Building service technicians, plant operators, non- electrical skilled workers such as fitters, painters, carpenters, laborers, utility operators, equipment operators, janitors, waste handlers and warehouse workers, and other workers who may use or interact with electrical equipment and devices.
