Electrical Worker (Introduction) Safety Pack

    Electrical Worker (Introduction) Safety Pack

    Construction workers require electricity to power essential tools and workplace equipment. Yet electricity can raise the potential for numerous worksite hazards and has been recognized by OSHA as one of the greatest dangers faced by construction workers. This makes it critical to provide adequate, OSHA-compliant safety training for new hires before they begin work. The Electrical Worker (Introduction) Safety Pack gives employees the training they need to recognize and avoid hazards to create a safer work environment for all.

    NOTICE: It is recommended that all newly hired electrical workers complete the training requirements included in this safety pack before beginning a job.

    Course Objectives

    The Electrical Worker (Introduction) Safety Pack includes six courses that offer over three hours of required training for electrical workers. The courses introduce key concepts in electrical safety, including:
