#EL003 - VHS (17 min. 1995)
Electricity lights up our homes and powers much of the machinery and equipment that we use. Unfortunately, most employees take electricity for granted and forget that it can also be dangerous. Employees need to know how electricity works and the precautions to take to protect themselves from its hazards. Electrical Safety in the Workplace reminds employees about electrical hazards they may face in their jobs, and provides the valuable information they need to work safely around electricity, such as how electricity works, fuses and circuit breakers, outlets, plugs and extension cords, working with electrical equipment, using ladders around electricity, and electrical emergencies. This program also satisfies the OSHA training requirements under 29 CFR Part 1910.331 for non-qualified employees.
