COURSE NO: E06-008
PDH CREDIT: 6
COURSE PROVIDER: Allen Hughes, P.E.
A Guide to Electrical Safety for Non-Electrical Workers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will establish, through the course document, how non-electrical workers can use the Safety Model as an important tool for recognizing, evaluating and controlling electrical hazards.

 

Whenever working with power tools or around electrical circuits, there is a risk of electrical hazards. Anyone can be exposed to these hazards in construction and industrial settings. Workers can be exposed to increased hazards because the nature of work-sites can be fast paced, cluttered with tools and materials, and open to the weather.  This guide discusses the dangers of electricity, electrical shock and the resulting injuries. Various electrical hazards are described.

 

The 6 PDH online course is intended for engineers, architects, surveyors, contractors and other workers with little or no electrical training who are interested in learning about electrical safety.
