Electrical Contact Release Training

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), who uses the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) and Survey of Occupational Injuries (SOII), in 2019, there were 166 electrical fatalities. This represents a 3.75% increase over 2018 and the highest number of electrical fatalities since 2011.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) developed the 70E requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards. It helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to electrical hazards like shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. This course expands on this information, addressing electrical contact, which can prove fatal if not addressed properly and swiftly. It covers the basic science of electricity, how the body is a conductor, the effect of electricity on the body, recognizing and assessing a shock event, and the use of first aid after the release.

Safety is vital when working with electricity, and this course is geared toward informing participants on the dangers of and proper handling of accidents involving electrical contact. Use this course among all staff who either work with or supervise this work to ensure a consistent understanding of important safety precautions.
