Hazards exist in every workplace in many different scenarios: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. Controlling a hazard at its source is the best way to protect employees. Depending on the hazard or workplace conditions, OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practice controls to manage or eliminate hazards to the greatest extent possible. Therefore, OSHA developed the Personal Protection Equipment Standard to protect employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, employers, building owners, facility managers, and all personnel working on construction projects.

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.
