$899

Lecture

2 Day

1.6 CEU

At the end of this seminar students will be able to:

  1. Learn how to create a safe work environment for you and your co-workers
  2. Review the OSHA specific requirements for working on or near high voltage electrical systems
  • Why You should take this seminar

    Review OSHA electrical safety and specific requirements to work safely and efficiently for while near high voltage electrical systems. This electrical safety seminar covers the training mandates under OSHA 1910.269, including the requirements to be deemed a Qualified Worker.  With a seven-fold increase in OSHA’s penalty structure for violations and proposed revisions to allow harsher criminal negligence citations, you and your contractors need to be updated.

    Learn how to create a safe work environment for you and your co-workers through understanding electrical hazards and proper work and protection practices.

    Review the OSHA specific requirements for working near high voltage electrical systems, including personal protective grounding, equipment grounding, live line tools, PPE, and LOTO. Training will address power generation, over-head and underground lines and NESC applications.
