Electrical Equipment Training Course (8 hr.)
NFPA 70E, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart K & 1910 Subpart S.
This course covers OSHA Electrical Standards and the hazards associated with electrical installations and equipment. This course will also present an overview of measures to reduce hazards presented by arc flash events. It will cover basic electrical concepts, circumstances that can present the risk of arc flashes, electrical industry safety standards, and hazard control measures when work responsibilities cause you to work on or near equipment at risk for arc flash.
OSHA states that the training requirements contained in this section (29 CFR 1910.332 Training) apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of 1910.303 through 1910.308. This course covers the requirements for working safely in an electrical environment and assists in meeting the mandated training requirements of OSHA 1910.332. OSHA speciﬁcally mandates employer assessment of generally recognized hazards in the workplace and provisions for protecting the employee from those hazards. Students are familiarized with updates to OSHA, NFPA 70E, NEC and PPE improvements. Information is provided to help realize the beneﬁts of an electrical safety program which result in fewer electrical accidents, improved power system reliability, OSHA compliance and potential reductions in losses due to accidents and injuries. This course meets mandated training requirements of OSHA 1910.332 and .269 and improves ability to interpret OSHA, the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), ASTM and other applicable electrical safety regulations. Applying these best practices is essential to preventing electrical accidents, outages and equipment damage. Training Includes: Designed to provide the student with a survey of OSHA’s electrical standards and the hazards associated with electrical installations and equipment.
This electrical safety training course satisfies the training requirements of OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.301 to 1910.399 Electrical Standard.
