Electrical Safety for Utilities (ESU)

Electrical Safety for Utilities

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course provides training for new, multi-craft or experienced electricians, linemen, technicians, engineers, supervisors and safety managers that install, maintain, repair, troubleshoot or work around power generation, transmission and distribution equipment.

Informal on-the-job training can be dangerous. To ensure adequate safe work practices are followed, personnel must understand electrical hazards, safety regulations, and the use of safe work procedures, protective equipment and standards. This course meets mandated training requirements of OSHA 1910.332 and .269 and improves ability to interpret OSHA, the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), ASTM and other applicable electrical safety regulations. Applying these best practices is essential to preventing electrical accidents, outages and equipment damage.
