Electricity is all around us. It lights up our homes, powers much of the machinery and equipment that we use, and runs many of our tools. We are so used to it, most employees take it for granted. Yet electricity can also be dangerous. Employees need to know how electricity works, and what they should do to protect themselves from its hazards. ’Electrical Safety’ provides the information employees need to work safely around electricity. The Course also satisfies the OSHA training requirements under 29 CFR Part 1910.331 for ’non-qualified’ employees.
