This electrical safety for non-electrical workers training course provides a solid foundation for compliance considerations by building owners, managers, supervisors and employers who realize the importance of electrical safety in their workplace. This course is intended to raise awareness about electrical safety both on and off the job. The target audience is non-electricians, including  maintenance workers, machine operators and anybody who works with and around electrical tools or equipment.

Electrical safety is not just important for electricians and electrical workers, it is also important for non-electrical employees who work with electrically powered devices or who are engaged in activities that may result in encountering electrical hazards in the workplace. Employers must provide leadership in promoting health and safety. They must also ensure that non-electrical workers are provided with a safe environment and receive adequate instruction, and health and safety training for their related areas of work. Ensuring staff understand and follow required procedures and health and safety rules, which allows them to take immediate action to correct unsafe conditions when they become aware of them.
