Electricity is very powerful and can be very dangerous. This course describes the six main types of potentially fatal electrical injuries. It also describes some of the many electrical hazards that you may encounter, and how to control those hazards.
You’ll learn how electricity works and how it travels, cord and wire safety, safe power-tool use, safe work practices, how to use personal protective equipment, and the importance of training in electrical safety.
OSHA’s 1926 Subpart K — Electrical is all about the safe operation of electricity. Most people accept electricity as a source of power without giving much thought to the hazards that electricity creates. Electrical safety is important whether you work with it directly, as with engineers, electronic technicians, or power-line workers, or indirectly, as with office workers or salespeople.
