Electricity can expose workers to electric shock, electrocution, burns, fires and explosions on the job. Electrocutions resulted in 171 work-related deaths in the U.S. in 2011. Most work-related injuries and deaths can be prevented by following basic electrical safety techniques on the job.

In this course, the student will review electrical safety-related work practice requirements for general industry and construction. These requirements, stipulated in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs), are enforced by the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA).

This course is relevant to business owners, engineers, managers, foreman and any other personnel working in industries that require the distribution and use of electrical power. Since almost every business in the U.S. uses electricity to power tools, appliances, computers, machinery, etc., this course is relevant in many different industries.
