Even if you don’t work directly with electricity you know that it can be dangerous. For those who are employed in fields requiring direct contact with electricity you must understand how it works, the associated hazards and safe work practices.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) identifies electricity as a workplace hazard. The OSHA standard covered in Electrical Safety: Stepback for Safety and Electrical Safety was established to keep employees safe from electrical hazards present in the workplace. Examples covered include electrical flow, forces, circuits, preventing electrical shocks, burns and death to name a few.
Train your employees on safe practices for working with electricity — it could save a life!
