According to OSHA, many workers are unaware of the potential electrical hazards present in their work environment, which makes them more vulnerable to the danger of electrocution. The most frequent causes of electrical injuries: contact with power lines, lack of ground-fault protection, path to ground missing or discontinuous, equipment not used in manner prescribed, and improper use of extension and flexible cords.

In this webcast, the speakers will inform you as to how these hazards can be avoided. This will include a review of relevant OSHA (29 CFR 1910), NFPA 70E and other relevant standards.

Solutions exist that resist the risk of injury associate with electrical work. Tune into this webcast to ensure you’re aware. Examples of solutions include the use of insulation, guarding, grounding, electrical protective devices, and safe work practices.
