High Voltage Safety

High Voltage Safety covers the key aspect of the OSHA Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standard, 29 CFR 1910.269. This standard applies to organizations that either generate electricity or transmit energy to others. It also applies to organizations that have their own substations or electrical distribution systems. During this electrical safety program, you will learn to recognize and avoid unsafe work areas. You will also learn correct approach distances. Upon completion of this electrical training, you will have a better understanding of proper voltage rated tools and the use of proper personal protective equipment (PPE). By educating workers on the high voltage safety issues central to the safe performance of their every day jobs, loss of life or serious injuries can be reduced and eliminated with safety workplace training. Your safety and the safety of your co-workers depend on it!
