This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief overview of the hazards of electrical work and the basic approaches to working safely.
Whenever you work with power tools or on electrical circuits, there is a risk of electrical hazards, especially electrical shock. Anyone can be exposed to these hazards at home or at work. Workers are exposed to more hazards because job sites can be cluttered with tools and materials, fast-paced, and open to the weather. Risk is also higher at work because many jobs involve electric power tools.
This presentation helps prepare you for additional safety training such as hands-on exercises and more detailed reviews of regulations for electrical work. Practices that will help keep you safe and free of injury are emphasized. This presentation will also present to you important definitions and notes. To give you an idea of the hazards caused by electricity, case studies about real-life deaths will be described.
