Don’t Let Sparks Fly This Fourth of July!

Don’t let sparks fly this fourth of July – or any other day for that matter. No I’m not talking about fireworks, I’m talking about electrical safety. Electricity has become so commonplace we often take for granted the ability it has to cause serious harm. Everyone uses electricity in some capacity at work, but there are different hazards you need to be aware of depending on the type of equipment and work you do.

Electrical Safety: What Everyone Should Know” provides workers with a general overview on how electricity works and the affect it can have on the human body. Protection devices and tips for using electricity, cords and plus safely are described.

Electrical Safety: Electrical Arc Flash Safety” explains the power of an electrical arc flash for those who work on energized sites. Workers will learn about the NFPA and other standard-setting organizations who oversee electrical safety and compliance.

For more resources on electrical safety, check out the CDC electrical safety page, which included publications on related topics from NIOSH.
