Job Hazard Analysis - Electrical Personnel


This 8-contact-hour lecture course meets the minimum requirements for training on OSHA-mandated "Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices" for those employees whose work may expose them to the hazard of being near or exposed to electrical parts operating at 50 volts or more to ground and their supervisors.   This course has been designed to meet the objectives in both the cognitive and affective domains to provide the participants with not only the “what’s” of the electrical work practices but also the “why’s”.  This course can be build around your company’s written electrical work practices, if available, or the program can be presented using the industry best practices based upon the information presented in OSHA CFR’s, NFPA 70, 70B and 70E consensus industrial standards.

A One Of A Kind Opportunity For You To Learn:

  • When the OSHA 50 volt rule just isn’t good enough.
  • The Three Hazards associated with the use of GFCIs.
  • Why Torquing of Electrical Connections is important and what happens when connections are not correctly made.

Why Attend?

  • Human Resource and Safety Personnel will learn the "whys" behind the policies and procedures.
  • Qualified Persons will learn how to apply Safety to common work practices.
  • Un-qualified Persons will learn why electricity must be respected at both work and at home. So often individuals will do much more around electricity at home than work and this course will also discuss many topics relevant to home safety.

Class Format: A Trilogy of Teaching Techniques

  • Animated Lecture Presentations with Active Class Participation and Hands-on Activities.
  • Participant/Observer Role Playing using Video Reenactments of Actual Accidents.
  • Apply Your Company’s Electrical Work Practices or incorporate applicable OSHA’s CFRs, NFPA 70, 70B, and 70E consensus industrial standards.

After a through discussion of the hazards of electricity the student will be introduced to the 12 Steps to Electrical Job Hazard Analysis. The student will then be asked to apply the 12 Steps and Relevant Company Work Practices in the Analysis of Real-world accidents. If company work practices are not available then OSHA regulations will be discussed along with consensus industrial standards.
