Environmental Health and Safety Mandatory Training Guidance for Determining the Applicability of Training to a Specific Position

NAME OF TRAINING: Electrical Safety
CONTENT OF TRAINING: Identification of electrical hazards and appropriate methods for protecting the worker from electrical shock.
WHO MUST ATTEND: All employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level through equipment design safeguards.
HOW TO REGISTER FOR TRAINING: Contact Raul F. Garcia-Casariego, CSP, CHMM (see below)
APPLICABLE REGULATIONS: OSHA 29 CFR 1910.332 Electrical Safety Training (http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=STANDARDS&p_id=9909)
EXPLANATION AND EXAMPLES: Employees are NOT required to be trained if their work does not bring them close enough to exposed parts of electric circuits to present a risk of electric shock. For example, a person who is required to simply turn electrical equipment on and off does not require this training, but someone who is required to work on exposed electrical circuits while the equipment is energized would require training.
