On Thursday morning, August 20, two employees of Oak Mountain High School were planning on doing maintenance work on parking lot lights. 
When they flipped a 277V breaker, an arc flash occurred. Due to the arc flash, one worker suffered injuries on his face; the other received 2nd degree burns. Neither worker had PPE on, and they had not had previous training on electrical safety. One of e-Hazard’s Train the Trainer graduates, Randy Glaze, was able to conduct e-Hazard’s Low Voltage electrical safety class to about 30 Shelby County employees soon after the incident...  Read More...

Social media is a great way to stay connected to the latest electrical safety news, and you can check out our "What Not To Do" photo series!  Come and join us!
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.
