Online OSHA Electrical Safety Training Course
If your job involves more than just plugging in an extension cord you need to think clearly about what’s at stake. Electrical-related incidents cause over 300 deaths every year in the United States, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA provides a list of the types of positions that warrant electrical safety training, and the diversity of jobs might surprise you, especially if you thought that this type of training only applies to electrician’s helpers. The list includes such positions as “blue collar supervisors,” “industrial machine operators,” — even “painters”!
When you consider the cost of being complacent, it’s no wonder that so many employers insist that their workers are professionally trained in handling electricity in the workplace. Electrical safety training educates workers in how to distinguish the various components of electrical systems, how to discern dangerous levels of electricity and what precautions need to be taken.
It also covers how electricity affects the body, what distances are safe and unsafe, what types of situations involving electricity are more hazardous than others, what proper grounding is, what lack of ground-fault protection means, the proper use of electrical extension cords, the effect of water, and many more topics.
As usual, our online course that covers electrical safety is designed according to OSHA guidelines and you can take it online at your own pace. You need to get a score of 70 to pass, but hey, if it was easy it wouldn’t be worth anyone’s time or attention.
If you supervise workers that come into contact with potentially dangerous levels of electricity, you owe it to them and yourself to have the proper training. If you are a worker and your boss hasn’t given you proper training, encourage him or her to study the pages we reference above on the OSHA website and get you the training you need to be safe.
