1. Electrical Safety for "Unqualified" Non-electrical Workers
Electrical Safety for Non-Electrical Workers includes OSHA 1910 and NFPA 70E electrical safety requirements, and is specifically designed to help workers who are not qualified to do electrical work but might be in the vicinity of live work. We’ll discuss electrical safety topics that can impact them daily, such as frayed extension cords, damaged portable equipment, damp locations, double insulated, GFCIs, ungrounded equipment, over-loaded circuits, how grounding works, power strips, two-pronged plugs and more. In this course we’ll look at real life scenarios and case studies to assist workers in identifying and avoiding electrical hazards. The OSHA requirements contained in this training apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of §1910.303 through 1910.308.

2. New Rules and Forgiveness Applications
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Flexibility Act, which was signed into law on June 5, 2020, made a number of changes to the PPP including extending the period businesses can utilize funds and receive forgiveness, allowing for a greater portion of the loan to be utilized on non-payroll expenses, and much more.
