This course covers the different types of electricity such as low voltage, high voltage, and static electricity. The purpose of this training is to ensure workers are aware of electrical hazards . This course is designed for workers that work with and around electrical tools and equipment, or are or could be exposed to electrical hazards.
To ensure workers have a basic understanding of electrical safety, who as a part of their work, may be potentially exposed to electrical hazards. This is an awareness level course for “unqualified persons” as defined by OSHA. Electricity is essential to modern life, both at home and on the job.
