Electrical Safety Training Is An Essential Part Of Protecting Workers
Employees will gain the knowledge and understanding of today’s electrical safety regulations and standards with experienced instructors and hands-on demonstrations during Electrical Safety Training. Electrical Safety Specialists strongly believes that safety is a mindset; people will not follow regulations if they don’t understand the benefits and how to apply them in real world situations.
These requirements reflect the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) belief that Electrical Safety Training is an essential part of every employer’s safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries.
Employee Electrical Safety Training programs are always an issue in review commission cases, which involve alleged violations of training requirements contained in OSHA standards.
The adequacy of employee Electrical Safety Training may also become an issue in contested cases where the affirmative defense of unpreventable employee misconduct is raised. Under case law well-established in the commission and the courts, an employer may successfully defend against an otherwise valid citation by demonstrating that all feasible steps were taken to avoid the occurrence of the hazard. Training in the proper performance of a job is time and money well spent. The employer should regard it as an investment rather than an expense.
ESS’s Electrical Safety Training Goals include:
· To provide skills necessary to demonstrate proficiency in electrical safety.
. To provide an overall awareness of the potential arc flash hazards.
How to interpret arc flash warning labels.
· To provide skills to determine electrical hazards.
· Provide training that is acceptable in OSHA’s eyes as affective.
Electrical Safety Training includes an introductory course to arc flash, electrical hazards and many of the complex standards and regulations per OSHA and NFPA70E. Students will gain a tremendous amount of knowledge and respect for the power of electricity and the damage that it can cause to people and equipment. This training is based on the following codes and standards from the NFPA 70E 2018, OSHA 29CFR 1910 Subpart S Electrical, IEEE 1584, NEC 2014, ANSI, and ASTM.
