Construction sites can contain a number of potential electrical hazards. OSHA defines four types of hazards that are associated with electricity, and three types of injuries that result from them. Direct contact with electricity, through a power source, cord or transmission line is the most common type of electrical hazard, and can occur in a number of ways. Employers are required to train workers regarding electrocution hazards and the measures that they should take to control the hazards. Employers must also put procedures into place so that workers can get answers to any questions that they have about working safely around electrocution hazards.
OSHA's Position On Electrical Safety Training
It would definitely stand to reason that any industry that requires employees to be exposed to potential electrical hazards would be subject to regulations involving proper safety procedures. OSHA has specific mandates in this area and this means that you, as an employer, are responsible for making sure that training is provided per OSHA 1910.332(b). Of course, the safety of your employees should always be a prime consideration and everyone needs to understand the safest way to approach their work responsibilities. Because of this, you will want to make sure that your training materials represent the highest quality available. Additionally, you will want these materials to be comprehensive and easy to understand. The training materials that we offer include:
- General Electrical Safety
- Arc Flash Safety (per OSHA’s and the NFPA 70E requirements)
- Laboratory Electrical Safety Training
- Electrical in Construction Environments
Electrical safety training is another one of those training categories that employees should be exposed to, prior to being allowed to work in an electrical environment. Because of this, if you want the convenience of hiring employees on an individual basis, you’ll need to have on-site training materials. For this very reason, we have made electrical safety training materials available that deal specifically with subjects required by OSHA compliance.
