Electrical Safety

Electrical safety policies, procedures, and training are needed to prevent burns, shocks, electrocution, and other hazards. Regular businesses and homes have enough electricity to cause severe injury or death, and all electrical systems have the potential to cause harm. Employers must make employees aware of any potential risk with electrical hazards present in any work environment in order to prevent injury. These resources will help guide you in formulating the right policies and procedures.
