Electricity is so common in our homes and workplaces that we normally don’t think twice about using it. But electricity kills and injures thousands of people every year, so it’s important to understand its hazards and know how to avoid them.
Electricity poses two major hazards to people who work with it. The most intense is arc flash, a violent release of electrical energy that causes severe injuries and fatalities. The second is shock, which can cause burns, internal injuries, cardiac arrest and even be fatal.
Our training course on Arc Flashes was designed to help your workers understand how to work with electricity safely.
