Electrical Safety Training 

Electricity is a serious workplace hazard exposing employees to the dangers of electric shock, fires, explosions, and arc flash and blast. However, electrical accidents in the workplace can be avoided with the use of safe electrical work practices, and that starts with training. Any employee who is potentially exposed to electrical incident energy shock or to arc or blast conditions for voltages greater than 50 needs to be trained a minimum of every three years on the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 70E standard.

phil haatajaJ. J. Keller’s Electrical Safety Training is based on the NFPA 70E Standard and will help your company meet OSHA’s Part 1910 Electrical Standard.
