Why You should take this training program
Workers in an industrial setting operate a variety of different equipment and are thus exposed to electrical hazards. The good news is that a trained operator can be a part of your maintenance solution, reporting when equipment is no longer operating in a “Normal Operational” state, giving you extra eyes and ears to identify potentially needed maintenance.
This course is intended for workers who operate equipment and their supervisors. Students will learn about the electrical hazards they will encounter as equipment operators and then, using this context, be able to observe and report the status of equipment’s Operating State.
This course meets the requirements specified for 3-year refresher training in the NFPA70E® standard: “Retraining in safety-related work practices and applicable changes in this standard shall be performed at intervals not to exceed 3 years.”
