Five workers are electrocuted every week, causing 12 percent of young employee workplace deaths. This staggering statistic demonstrates how being aware of the hazards associated with electricity is critical. This Video On Demand explains electrical terms and how electricity flows. It discusses the four main types of electrical injuries and how people get electrical shocks and electrical burns from tools, machines and other power sources.

Electrical hazards and how to control them are explored. The video reminds workers that cranes, ladders, scaffolds, backhoes, scissor lifts, raised dump truck beds and aluminum paint rollers can contact power lines and cause severe injury or death. Viewers learn of the danger of mismatching power tools to extension cords, thwarting circuit breakers and increasing the possibility of electrocution, and of working with damaged electrical cords of any type. The importance of grounding is thoroughly explained, along with when to use a ground-fault circuit interrupter. Power tool grounding and safety requirements are explored in depth, along with pre-use tool inspection. Safety-related work practices are explained.

This training video is important for anyone working with electricity to view. It will help workers prevent potentially deadly accidents involving electrical energy. It’s appropriate for veteran employees and new crew members.
