OSHA 29 CFR 1910 Electrical Safety Training Course - This 12-Hour (2-Day) live-online, instructor-led Arc Flash Electrical Safety course is suited to electric utility workers working with or near low or high voltage lines or equipment and those whose task it is to manage workers in those environments. Students will learn about the dangers of arc hazards, safe work practices in accordance with the NEC and OSHA 1910.269 standards, practical personal protection strategies, best work practices in arc flash, and the state of the art in personal protective equipment in alignment with OSHA 1910.269 regulations  and NEC standards.


What is Electrical Safety and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269 Standard For Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution?

OSHA's Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standard, 29 CFR 1910.269, provides direction for employers on implementing safe work practices designed to prevent these hazards.

Workers in the electric power industry are potentially exposed to a variety of serious hazards, including electric shock, falls, burns and arc flashes. OSHA's Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standard, 29 CFR 1910.269, provides direction for employers on implementing safe work practices designed to prevent these 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 through a better understanding of how to assess 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.

With a seven-fold increase in OSHA’s penalty structure for violations and proposed revisions to allow harsher criminal negligence citations, you and your contractors need to be updated.
