Title:

Electrical Safety Hazard-Reduction: How To Zap Common Mistakes That Cause Crippling Injuries, Facility Damage, And OSHA Fines

SKU:WC-1023899
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

In 2016, lockout/tagout (LOTO), electrical wiring, and electrical general requirements again made OSHA’s top 10 list of violations. Today, the average OSHA fine for an electrical rule violation is over $4,700 and an electric shock injury can cost over $1 million in medical and related expenses. Arc flash injuries are even more costly.

This underscores just how common electrical hazards are, which include injuries, cause shock, burns, and electrocution from power lines, machines, tools, appliances, light fixtures, wiring, and other electrical components. That’s why it’s so important to address your injury-prevention and hazard-reduction strategy before it’s too late.

Performing a comprehensive assessment, including an inspection of electrical equipment, evaluation of electrically related work practices and risks, and identification of other potential issues like overhead and underground utilities, can go a long way toward keeping workers safe and your organization in compliance.

May is National Electrical Safety Month, which makes it the perfect time to learn the proactive steps you can take to improve your electrical safety program. Join us for a webinar on how to identify, evaluate, and correct common electrical hazards to ensure that employees are protected, and that your company is in compliance with applicable OSHA regulations designed to keep workers safe.
