Ground-Fault Protection on Construction Sites
This online engineering PDH course provides OSHA's electrical requirements for ground fault circuit interrupters to protect workers against electrical hazards.
With the wide use of portable tools on construction sites, the use of flexible cords often becomes necessary. Hazards are created when cords, cord connectors, receptacles, and cord- and plug-connected equipment are improperly used and maintained. Shocks, burns or fire-related fatalities resulting from humans exposed to non-grounded equipment significantly contribute to the overall number of fatalities in the construction workplace.
OSHA recognizes that non-grounded equipment present serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore, OSHA developed the Electrical Standard that contains the requirements for ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) to protect workers against 120-volt electrical hazards on the construction site.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to employers/business owners, engineers, managers, electricians, construction workers and any other personnel working with or around energized equipment that require grounding.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- What is a GFCI
- What are some other ways to prevent electrical injury
- How can employers protect their workers
- What is the assured equipment grounding conductor program
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review OSHA 3007, "Ground-Fault Protection on Construction Sites".
