Lessons from Accident Investigations for Electrical Safety

Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2016
Time: 11 a.m  PST, 1 p.m. CST,  2 p.m. EST

Sponsored by: GlenGuard™ and
Occupational Health & Safety

In over 160 accident investigations, some common themes show up which are valuable in developing PPE programs, training for electrical safety and doing accident investigations. Asking the right questions and observing the evidence provide insights into worker behavior. This session will delve into several public incidents to gain insight to prevent the accident or mitigate worker injury in potential electrical shock and arc flash incidents.

Join us for this FREE 1 hour informative webinar.
Used by many NFPA 70E committee members and over 900 trainers, our low voltage training provides you with extensive knowledge of the dangers and recommended safe behaviors for those who work around electrical hazards.  
Working on or around 1 to 69kV industrial high voltage distribution systems requires qualification. In this training, attendees learn what it means to be HV qualified and which electrical tasks can only be performed by a qualified person.
