About The Electrical Safety For Operators Training Course
All employees must be trained and qualified regardless of their job. Operators in industrial facilities often perform electrical tasks for which they may not be properly trained or qualified. Not only is this a violation of OSHA regulations, but it's also careless. Untrained workers may not recognize electrical hazards that can lead to personal injury and equipment damage, and no one needs that. This training course will teach non-electricians the safety principles and practices they need in order to operate their equipment safely.
Who Should Attend This Training?
Employees who operate electrical devices or equipment but are not trained electricians or electrical technicians. Safety professionals are also encouraged to attend.
