Our interactive course on Electrical Safety in HAZMAT Environments is designed to help facilities comply with OSHA’s HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120). As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee’s specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. The course helps employees understand the hazards of uncontrolled energy in hazardous materials environments, and how to reduce or eliminate these potential hazards.
Areas covered in the program include arcs, sparks and high temperatures, the National Electrical Code’s three HAZMAT Classes, engineering controls, intrinsically safe electrical systems, isolating machinery and work practices, purging, inerting, and pressurization, confines spaces, uncontrolled electrical sources, and more.
