OSHA Electrical Safety Training is crucial to ensuring workplace safety for employees exposed to electrical hazards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency that regulates and enforces workplace safety standards in the United States. They have set guidelines for electrical safety training to help prevent accidents caused by electricity.

OSHA Electrical Safety Training is critical to ensure workplace safety. Employers must follow OSHA standards to protect their employees from electrical hazards. They must provide the necessary training, equipment, and PPE to comply with the regulations. By doing so, employers can help prevent accidents and injuries caused by electricity in the workplace.

The OSHA standard for electrical safety is the Electrical Standard (29 CFR 1910.302-308). It outlines the requirements for electrical installations, wiring methods, and equipment operating in the general industry. This standard also includes safety-related work practices for employees who work with electric equipment and establishes the minimum training requirements for employees exposed to electrical hazards.

OSHA electrical safety training includes electrical circuits, electric shock, and electrical equipment instruction. It also covers using personal protective equipment (PPE) and other safety measures. Successful completion of the training is necessary to ensure that employees are aware of electrical hazards and how to protect themselves from them.

To comply with OSHA regulations, employers must provide training to their employees who are exposed to electrical hazards. This training must be specific to the work they are performing and the electrical equipment they are using. Employers must also provide PPE to employees exposed to electrical hazards.


OSHA 29 CFR 1910 Training Course Description

This training course complies with the training mandates under OSHA 1910.269 and is targeted at Generation, Transmission and Distribution qualified electrical workers.

Students will learn the importance of creating a safe work environment by better assessing potential electrical hazards and proper personal work practices and PPE requirements.

Students will review the OSHA-specific requirements for working near high-voltage electrical systems, including:

  • Personal protective grounding
  • Equipment grounding
  • Live line tools
  • PPE selection
  • Lockout/Tagout (LOTO)


Training will address power generation, overhead and underground lines and NESC applications.

You and your contractors must be updated with a seven-fold increase in OSHA’s penalty structure for violations and proposed revisions to allow harsher criminal negligence citations.
