From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Exposure to electricity is a serious workplace hazard that puts employees at risk of dangers such as electric shock, burns, explosions, fires, and electrocution. It is one of the most common causes of construction industry injuries and deaths.

This online electrical safety training course is designed to protect construction workers from electrical hazards. Understanding and following safety regulations are important components of ensuring workplace safety. Course content for electrical construction training includes hazard identification, avoidance, and control. It will also present key safety practices based on requirements set by OSHA.

This course is for:
This construction electrical safety training is designed for anyone who must or may come into contact with electricity.

Case Study: On August 28, 2018, a 33-year-old man was found dead at the Utah state archives building. The man was doing electrical work on an upper floor, in a corner room not easily visible to the rest of the workers, when he was electrocuted. While other workers were in the building at the time, none of them saw what happened, and the man's body remained undetected overnight.

Key Takeaway: This accident was likely the result of a failure to de-energize, lock out, tag out, and ground the electrical circuit before performing work. OSHA is still investigating this accident.
