Workplace Electrical Safety


Electrical accidents are most often caused by a combination of factors, such as a lack of training; lack of supervision; inadequate work practices; poorly maintained equipment or installation; and a hazardous work place environment.

The purpose of the Workplace Electrical Safety program is to provide participants with a basic understanding of Electrical Safety to help identify and report any electrical hazards you may come across during your day-to-day duties so that you can help to prevent any injuries, damage to equipment or even death.
