This course lays the framework for basic electrical understanding in order to build in hazard recognition. Students learn about the effects and thresholds of electric shock and arc flash. With basic electrical understanding, students easily learn about basic components such as receptacles, switches, and power tools. Personnel protective devices such as GFCI and grounding conductors are explained and demonstrated. Additional electrical safety topics are discussed, including battery safety, power line safety, and initial response to electrical fire and electric shock events. This course is designed for persons that are not electrical workers, yet are exposed to a greater than normal risk of electrical shock due to their job activities. These could include working in the vicinity of electrical gear or electrical workers. This training would also apply to those workers that use portable electric tools or extension cords. This is a 4 hour course, but does not offer CEUs.
