Electrical Safety: 02. Safe Work Practices and PPE

Course overview

Unsafe work practices are one of the most common causes of electrical accidents. Failing to de-energize equipment prior to service, allowing unqualified personnel to work on energized equipment, using tools too close to energized equipment, and neglecting to post warnings and barricades around a work area are some examples of unsafe work practices. What can we do to work safer? That's what this program is about. We will go over the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations regarding electrical safety, electrical work permits, using insulated tools, how to create a written safety program, and personal protective equipment.
