Keeping Your Employees Safe with Electrical Safety Training

Training Technology offers technical training courses that will keep your entry-level instrumentation mechanics or experienced electricians OSHA compliant. With that in mind, the person will learn about the construction, operation, and how to avoid the hazards associated with their job, whether they are working on industrial process measurement or industrial process control.


Subparts S & K

This is a 4-level course. It's designed for electrical personnel who work on or near electrical parts that operate anywhere from 50 to over 600 volts to ground.

Level 1 Course:

This is a 4-contact-hour lecture. Those employees whose work may expose them to the hazard of being near or exposed to electrical parts that operate at 50 volts or more to ground will benefit from this course.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to do the following:

  • Describe the Hazards of Electricity
  • Identify Safe Work Practices Related to the Work of Level 1 Personnel
  • State Safe Work Clearances for Level 1 Personnel
  • Explain the Proper Use of GFCIS

Level 2 Course:

This is an 8-contact-hour lecture. Employees who perform mechanical work on or near exposed electrical parts and perform only like-for-like substitution of electrical devices that operates at 50 volts or more to ground need this class.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to do the following:

  • Meet the Objectives of the Level 1 Course
  • Explain the 6 Requirements for an Electrical Lockout/Tagout
  • Explain the Use of Protective Equipment
  • State Safe Work Clearances for Level 2 Personnel
  • Identify Safe Work Practices Related to the Work of Level 2 Personnel

Level 3 Course:

The level 3 course is a 20-contact-hour lecture. It's ideal for employees who perform electrical work on or near exposed electrical parts that operate at 50 volts or more to ground but not exceeding 600 volts nominal.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to do the following:

  • Meet the Objectives of the Level 1 & Level 2 Course
  • Understand Recent Changes in the NFPA 70 - NEC
  • Requirements for Employee Workplaces
  • Identify Safe Work Practices Related to the Work of Level 3 Personnel
  • Understand Recent Changes in NFPA 70B - Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance
  • Review Recent Changes in NFPA 70E - Standard for Electrical Safety

Level 4 Course:

This is a 24-contact-hour lecture course. Employees who work on or near exposed electrical parts operating at over 600 volts will especially benefit from this course.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to do the following:

  • Meet the Objectives of the Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3 Course
  • Describe the Hazards of Electricity with a Potential over 600 Volts
  • State Safe Work Clearances for Voltages over 600 Volts
  • Explain Requirements for Measuring Voltages over 600 Volts
  • Explain the Use of Protective Equipment
  • Understand Recent Changes in the NFPA 70 - NEC
  • Identify Safe Work Practices Related to the Work of Level 4 Personnel

OSHA Subparts R&V

To ensure that a safe workplace exists, we encourage everyone whose employees perform operations or maintenance work or who have access to electric power generation, transmission, or distribution installations to take this course. This is partially because it is required by state and local government as well as "co-op" owned power generation, transmission, and distribution installations with OSHA approved plans, but it also helps protect your business and your employees from costly mistakes. The standard covers the following types of operations and personnel:

  • Apprentices
  • High-Voltage Electricians
  • Inspection
  • Line Foremen
  • Linemen
  • Maintenance of Lines & Equipment
  • Senior Linemen
  • Streetlight Relamping
  • Substation Mechanics
  • Switching-Connection & Disconnection
  • System Operators
  • Testing & Fault Locating
  • Tree Trimmers

Scope

OSHA requires employees covered by the standard to be trained in the safety-related work practices, safety procedures, and other personnel safety requirements in 29 CFR 1910.269 (also referred to as Subpart R).

This standard covers all electric power generation, transmission, and/or distribution installations, whether owned by a utility or not. Unlike the requirements in general industry electrical safety related work practices (Subpart S), workers who are covered by this standard are not only required to be qualified workers, but they must also be certified workers. This intensive two-day course meets the training requirement on the OSHA-mandated standard and can be used as part of your certification process.
