In this seminar, students will learn how to work safely and efficiently around high voltage electricity. OSHA Requirement 29 CFR 1910.269 covers the operation and maintenance of electric power generation, control, transformation, transmission, and distribution lines and equipment. This seminar will outline all of the requirements in this OSHA ruling and how it applies to all electric power GTD operations.
This High Voltage Electrical Safety Training seminar, while perfect for any student who works around electric power GTD installations, is specifically designed for personnel working on or around high voltage electrical lines, equipment or around substations, underground electrical installations or power generators.
Day One - Discussion Topics
Day One reviews the relevant OSHA standard and examines electrical safety in the workplace. Students will learn the skills and techniques necessary to determine the nominal voltage of exposed live parts, the minimum approach distances corresponding to the voltages to which the qualified employee will be exposed, and the proper use of the special precautionary techniques, personal protective equipment (PPE), insulating and shielding materials, and insulated tools for working on or near exposed energized parts of electric equipment.
