This One-day High Voltage electrical safety training course is designed for electrical maintenance personnel responsible for High Voltage electrical systems, supervisory and health and safety professionals who are responsible for overseeing high voltage electrical work. Dynamic and highly concentrated, this course places maximum emphasis on safety when working on or near energized electrical equipment.
Students will learn the damage electricity can cause to the human body and understand the basic principles of safety in normal
and abnormal conditions. They will also learn how to provide assistance in determining severity of potential exposure to high
voltage arc flash hazards, planning safe work practices and selecting proper personal protective equipment.
During this program you will learn to recognize and avoid unsafe work areas. You will also learn correct approach distances.
Upon completion, you will have a better understanding of proper voltage rated tools and the use of proper personal protection
equipment. By educating workers on issues central to the safe performance of their everyday jobs, loss of life or serious injuries
can be reduced and eliminated from your workplace. Your safety and the safety of your coworkers depend on it!
