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.
Electrical Safety Training for Qualified Electrical Workers
Intended for all maintenance and testing personnel who work on or near electrical equipment, this course meets or exceeds the basic OSHA expectations for electrical safety training. All of the precepts and concepts of electrical safety are carefully explained, and both classroom and hands-on sessions assure that the skills and knowledge can be demonstrated to meet OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements. The practical demonstration of skills concentrates on applications at 600 volts and below. Additional training can be added to this course to encompass the understanding and demonstration of the special skills and knowledge required for medium voltage applications as well as employer-specific requirements.
Courses are prescheduled at multiple Louisiana and Texas locations.
