Learn More about Electricity 

Working with electricity can be dangerous. Engineers, electricians and other professionals work with electricity directly. Others, such as office workers and sales people, work with electricity indirectly and may also be exposed to electrical hazards.  Electricity has long been recognized as a serious workplace hazard. OSHA's electrical standards are designed to protect employees exposed to dangers, such as electric shock, electrocution, fires and explosions.

To protect these workers, employers must think about preventing injuries and providing workers with the right equipment for the job. A new video developed by the OSHA Region VI Training Institute Education Centers offers guidance on how to prevent injuries and fatalities from common hazards of working with electricity, and how they can be prevented.

The one-hour video focuses on the following topics:  

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Lockout/Tagout (LOTO)
  • Arc Flash
  • Best Practices
  • Resources
