Electrical Hazards


Electricity has long been recognized as a serious workplace hazard. Many workers are unaware of the potential electrical hazards present in their work environment, which makes them more vulnerable to the danger of electrocution. This has resulted in hundreds of workers being killed or injured every year due to exposure to hazardous electrical energy. Electric shock, burns, and falls are some of the hazards associated with working with electricity; electrocution is death by electric shock. Working with and around electricity should be taken seriously as a dangerous business.

What You'll Learn

The primary goal of this course is to teach workers safe work procedures to follow while working around electrical hazards in a construction environment. Users will learn:

  • The risks to electrical hazards on a construction site and how shocks occur
  • How to recognize and avoid common electrical hazards
  • Prevent contact with overhead power lines
  • About extension cords and other electrical equipment
  • About electrical safety-related work practices
  • About Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required on the job site

The Electrical Hazards simulation is ideal for employees or supervisors who work in or around active construction sites.
