What You'll Learn

This fully-compliant training course is based on the latest industry Standards and Regulations. It focuses on workplace electrical safety and the identification of the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock against an assigned energized electrical work task following a defined work flow process. Justification for energized electrical work is reviewed. Completing a Risk Assessment Procedure and the application of the Hierarchy of Risk Control Methods to reduce risk are emphasized. Additional protective measures including defining Approach Boundaries, the selection of appropriate Electrical Specific PPE, Tools & Equipment with proper pre-use checks/inspection, care, use and maintenance and content related to utilizing appropriate work practices/procedures are provided.

Who Should Attend

All workers who perform energized electrical work: electricians, engineers, technologists, instrumentation mechanics, HVAC technicians, cathodic protection technicians, elevator mechanics, fire alarm technicians, overhead door & crane mechanics and maintenance supervisors and managers.

Production/operations supervisors would gain valuable knowledge of changes and new requirements for maintenance personnel.

Learning Objectives

  • Enhance personal safety.
