Electrical Safety

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910 Subpart S - Electrical

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

This online electrical safety training course is designed to help workers understand the nature and risks of electrical accidents. Increased electrical awareness is essential to reduce this serious workplace hazard and prevent unsafe electrical conditions from occurring. Course topics include applicable regulations, design safety standards, and safety-related work practices.

Electricity is an essential component of modern life, both at home and in the workplace. However, electrical hazards such as shock, burns, fires, and explosions put employees at risk of accidents, injuries, and even death. The human body conducts electricity, so even a low-level current can cause indirect or secondary injuries, including falls, bruises, and bone fractures.

This course is for:
This OSHA electrical safety training is designed for anyone who faces a risk of electric shock or other electrical hazards. This includes electrical/electronic engineers, equipment assemblers, technicians, and electricians. Industrial machine operators, material handling equipment operators, mechanics, painters, riggers, welders, and electrical safety officers must also be trained, as well as anyone who may be reasonably expected to encounter electrical hazards.

Safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and can save lives.

This online training course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for electrical courses for general industry.

Case Study: A 44-year-old electrician with 15 years of experience and qualified to work on low-voltage equipment was troubleshooting an electrical unit substation at a print shop. He tested the low-voltage panel and found that there was no power in one of the three phases. He removed and tested the three fuses for the 12,000 volt power supply. Not finding the problem, the electrician checked the incoming power supply. When he used a 600 volt multi-meter to test the 12,000 volt bus bar, an electrical arc occurred, burning both of the electrician's hands and cracking a vertebra. An investigation revealed that the electrical problem with the unit was caused by a blown fuse at the utility pole.

Key Takeaway: To avoid accidents like this one, always isolate and lock out high-voltage equipment. Do not work on energized high-voltage equipment without training. In addition, always use electrical test equipment that is suitable for the voltage at hand; never use low-voltage meters to test energized high-voltage equipment.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 addresses general industry standards. OSHA's electrical standard is contained in 1910 Subpart S.

    Additional Resources

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as exposed energized parts, electrical equipment, and wiring in hazardous locations.

To ensure compliance with electrical hazards standards, safety training must be conducted at least once every three years per NFPA 70E, which is the basis for OSHA's electrical standards. This online certification course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
