This module covers Electrical Standards and the hazards associated with electrical installations and equipment. Module topics include single and three- phase electrical systems, cord and plug connected and fixed equipment, grounding, ground fault circuit interrupters, and safety-related work practices. Emphasis is placed on electrical hazard recognition, standards, policies, procedures and applicable portions of the National Electrical Code (NEC). Upon module completion participants will have the ability to understand the severity of electrical current on the human body, recognize and evaluate actual and potential electrical hazards, determine hazard abatement measures, and understand the proper use of electrical testing and electrical protective equipment. Participants of this module will have had advanced training and/or experience in an electrical discipline. In addition, this module is in part a requirement by the NFPA 70E as a refresher module. The how to perform hazard identification and risk assessment analysis will be emphasized. Advanced electrical safety topics will be reviewed and discussed.
