Every modern industry uses electrical systems. This means that anyone from construction workers to office workers is at risk of injuries due to electrical failures. Electrical injuries come in the form of shocks, electrocution, fires, and explosions. Without proper training, your team may encounter further injuries if an electrical accident were to happen.  

A 2023 study from the National Library of Medicine stated that electrical energy is the 5th leading cause of work-related incidents. Contact with high electricity is extremely dangerous because it can easily go through a person’s body. The study concludes that following OSHA standards is important for the electrical safety of all employees. 

In the U.S., there are about 30,000 non-fatal shock incidents that happen every year. For adults, these incidents happen in the workplace. This is why electrical safety training is a must. Knowing how to use electrical systems and how to prevent an electrical accident could save a life. 

Who needs electrical safety training?

Any employee that works with electrical systems or equipment needs electrical safety training. These machines need a high amount of electrical energy to maintain their output. Your team must know how to control these machines and their energy to prevent any accidents. You can check this guide by SafetyCulture or search for more electrical safety topics to create a safety plan perfect for your team. 

What are the OSHA electrical safety training requirements?

OSHA Standard 1910.332 states that jobs that are at risk of receiving a powerful electric shock must be trained at OSHA electrical safety standards. OSHA has provided a list of these jobs. Some of them include electronic engineers, welders, mechanics, and blue-collar supervisors. These jobs in particular have a larger proximity to electrical hazards.

There are also different requirements for workers who are qualified or unqualified. Unqualified persons cannot use any electrical equipment but can work in the area of live electrical circuits. Qualified workers can use the equipment as well as perform safety tests, remove locks or tags, and work with live electrical systems.

All applicable employees must be trained with OSHA Standards 1910.331 through 1910.335. Any unqualified employees must need additional safety training for their specific tasks. Meanwhile, qualified employees must be trained in, at the minimum, the identification of live electrical parts, the determination of the voltage of these parts, and the clearance distances and voltages they will be exposed to at work. 

Protect your team against injuries and accidents with OSHA electrical safety training courses

Those working with electricity or near electrical systems must be careful of their tools, equipment, and worksite. An electrical shock or failure could happen at any time without the right safety precautions.
