This course will address the management of an electrical safety program. The effectiveness of a program starts with the highest level of management setting the tone and allotting resources. Funds are allotted for training and for Personal Protective Equipment. The program must determine what work can be performed by in-house personnel and which must be done by Journeyman electricians. The program must also include mentoring and on the job training. A new maintenance person needs the guidance and encouragement of more experienced personnel. There should be training on the different tools used for the job. A basic understanding of which wires are used for each purpose and how to safely work on them will be addressed.
The consequences of an electrical incident can be devastating. Unsafe practices can result in shock, electrocution and fire. Beyond human suffering and death there are significant costs of an electrical incident including shut down of operations and inability to bid on jobs. The course will address voltages up to 440 volts. Electrical safety affects all workplaces including shop, factory, office, home office, hazardous waste clean-up site and construction site.
