Controlling Electrical Hazards
This online engineering PDH course provides OSHA guidance on controlling electrical hazards for protecting workers from exposure to electrical hazards.
Electricity has been long recognized as a serious workplace hazed, exposing employees to electric shock, electrocution, burns, fires and explosions. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, many workers have died from electrocutions at work, accounting for as many as 5% of all on-the-job-fatalities in a given year. What makes these statistics more tragic is that most of these fatalities could have been easily avoided.
OSHA recognizes that electrical hazards present serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore, OSHA developed several standards for Controlling Electrical Hazards to protect employees working in the construction industry from exposure to electrical hazards.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to employers, building owners, engineers, electricians, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects that involve exposure to electrical hazards.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- What affects the flow of electricity
