Online Electrical Safety Training
"Electrical Safety Training" defines a qualified worker and covers the hazards associated with electricity. This electrical safety training is written to meet the OSHA training requirements in 1910 Subpart S. Workers will learn the "safe distance" concept, electrical arcing, and the use of flame-retardant fabrics. Workers will also learn the benefits of personal protective equipment for the body, hands, head and feet. Workers will learn how to de-energize equipment and test for zero energy state and many other concepts that involve electrical safety. This electrical safety training course qualifies for continuing education units.
