New Line of Electrical Safety Training Materials
Electrical safety violations are on OSHA’s top ten list of most frequent violations; in fact, OSHA issued 2,556 citations for electrical safety violations in 2009.
However, these violations, and workplace accidents involving electrical injury and electrocution, are very easy to avoid with proper training. Employers can now provide their employees with the required training with the revamped line of electrical safety training products.(http://safety.1800inet.com/electrical-safety-training) from the Workplace Safety Store.
“Every year workers are needlessly injured by electricity on the job, according to Robin Watson of the Workplace Safety Store. “We want to prevent that from happening, which is why we are making available high quality DVDs, posters, booklets and other materials which have been proven effective in teaching employers how to keep their employees safe.”
OSHA has very specific regulations about requirements for employer safety training, and all of the materials are OSHA compliant. Employers who don’t follow OSHA regulations are taking a significant risk with their business and with the safety of their employees. Electrocutions and electrical injuries on the job are likely to result in hefty fines, lost worker productivity, and potential legal action from the injured or their families. It could even end up costing an employer their business.
“We urge people not to underestimate the danger of injury and death from exposure to electrical hazards on the job,” Watson said.
In fact, a study done in 1995 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that electrocutions accounted for 6% of all worker deaths, Watson points out.
And the National Safety Council reported that electrocutions were the fourth leading cause of work-related traumatic death in the years 1980-1989.
