Course DescriptionOn average, three workers die weekly from exposure to electricity and almost half of the workers injured by electricity are away from work for more than two weeks. Reducing accidental exposure to electricity can increase job safety and decrease lost production time. Workers can protect themselves by understanding sources of electric shock, recognizing potential hazards and knowing how to mitigate or avoid electrical hazards. Lockout/Tagout is used to prevent injuries during service or maintenance of equipment from all sources of energy, including electricity. Upon course completion, you will have a better understanding and the working knowledge necessary to recognize electrical hazards.
