“To save lives and reduce injuries by creating a positive safety culture in the workplace for employers and employees alike.”
Workers will gain knowledge and understanding of “today’s” electrical safety training, regulations and standards with experienced instructors and hands on demonstrations. We strongly believe 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 OSHA's 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.
