A Guide to Electrical Safety for Non-Electrical Workers
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the fundamentals of electricity
