Electrical Safety Above 601 Volts: Basics and Roles (Microlearning)


The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there are approximately 2,300 electrical-related injuries and 186 electrical-related fatalities each year in the U.S. As little as 6 milliamperes is enough to cause pain and loss of muscle control, making it critical for employers and employees to be aware of and respect the dangers of electricity. Certain employees work with or around high voltage electricity at or above 601 volts. These employees and their employers must take special precautions. Learners who successfully complete this course should be able to recognize the basic concepts of electricity and employee roles. This microlearning course presents a small part of a broader training topic. For a more complete training experience, see ELT-3.2 Electrical Safety Above 601 Volts.
