The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 6,210 work-related deaths occurred in private sector workplaces employing 11 workers or more. Six percent of the fatalities, or around 347 deaths, were the direct result of electrocutions at work. In addition to being trained in, and familiar with, safety-related work practices, unqualified employees must be trained on the inherent hazards of electricity, such as voltages, electric current, grounding, and lack of guarding. ALL employees who face a risk of electrical shock, burns or other related injuries, not reduced to a safe level by the installation of safety requirements of Subpart S, must be trained in safety-related work practices by 29 CFR 1910.331-.335. This half-day course meets these training requirements for working safely around electricity.
