7 ELECTRICAL SAFETY HABITS 2015 UPDATE NOW ON VIDEO

You have the option of renting the video for a 24-hour period or buying it for multi-use (licensing also available for server or LMS). The Updated DVD is still available at our store.

In this video, Hugh explains the seven most important electrical safety habits to prevent injuries and fatalities taken from more than 100 electrical incident investigations. This DVD is only 60 minutes long, so it’s a great presentation for a formal corporate safety training program or for an employee safety meeting. Update your video to the latest standards from NFPA and OSHA.


WHY DO I HAVE TO WEAR GLOVES?
Journeyman Lineman Roger Sandwith was fortunate as he was working on energized equipment with a hot stick. An arc flash occurred, and he received burns to three of his knuckles on one hand. After a medical examination, he was given the "all clear.”

Some electricians do not like to wear gloves because gloves can hamper the task assigned to them. Firefighters face the same challenge, having to learn hose-handling and life safety rope knot-tying while wearing gloves. It can certainly be challenging, but the alternative can lead to hand burns, and in the case of electrical workers, internal burns from electrical shock, and/or external burns from arc flash.
