Electrocution Hazards in Construction Environments: Part II...   Employer Responsibilities Interactive Training

While electrical energy does a lot of useful work on a job site, it can create serious hazards as well. Electricity kills more than a hundred construction workers each year and injures thousands more. They also suffer more than half of the electrical injuries that occur on the job. But these incidents could have been prevented.

Atlantic's "Electrocution Hazards Part II: Employer Responsibilities" training products discuss the electrical hazards that can be encountered on construction sites, the OSHA regulations that address them, and the responsibilities that employers have to protect workers from accidents and injuries involving electricity.

Topics covered include:

  • Electricity, OSHA and employee safety.
  • Working near power lines.
  • Safe practices for using electrical tools and cords.
  • Reducing ground fault hazards.
  • Energy isolation and equipment guarding.
  • Lock-out/tag-out.
  • and more.
