Register For This Event


7/25/24 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

Working around and with electricity can expose workers to serious hazards that could result in electrocutions, burns and arc flash injuries. In addition, OSHA has requirements based on NFPA 70E that you must understand and comply with to assess electrical hazards and minimize the associated risk of injury. That’s why electrical safety should be an important element of any company’s workplace safety program.

During this information-packed webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to determine who’s “qualified” to perform electrically hazardous tasks.
  • What tasks aren’t always understood to be “electrical work.”
  • How to assess shock hazards and arc flash hazards.
  • How to apply different electrical hazard mitigation strategies.
  • What recent advances have been made in electrical safety personal protective equipment.
  • How to maintain an electrical safety compliance calendar.

Bring your questions for a live Q&A session that will follow the event!
