May is Electrical Safety Month, and the danger of electrical hazards remains a constant concern in workplaces nationwide. In fact, electrocution remains one of the four leading causes of workplace deaths in the construction industry, commonly called the “Fatal Four” by OSHA, with approximately 9% of deaths in the workplace being caused by electrocution. In this episode, sponsored by AVO Training Institute, we’re marking Electrical Safety Month with an expert who can give us some insight into the issues surrounding electrical safety, from common hazards to personal protective equipment to strategies for keeping employees safe around electricity.

Electrical work is rife with hazards and more so in confined spaces. The costs of failure in human and economic terms are so great that stringent management of who performs the work, and how, is imperative. Electrical maintenance and safety certifications provide foundational knowledge for those exposed to the inherent health and safety risks.
Electrical worker certifications are sought for many reasons: new-hires; new equipment; transfers to a new shop or role; new rules, regulatory requirements or industry guidelines; or simply to upgrade an individual’s skill levels. For the recipients, achieving certification is appealing not only as a safety measure, but also as a career enhancer as it adds weight and gravitas to a resume.
There is a great deal of attention devoted to safe work practices during electrical construction, maintenance and repair work. Industry electrical publications regularly report on safety issues, including the use of the proper tools and equipment used for energized and deenergized work, as well as utilizing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) for each workplace situation.
AVO empowers employees to do their work safely, effectively and go home to their families at the end of their workday. As part of each hands-on course, students perform tasks in equipment labs supervised by some of the most talented & experienced electrical instructors in the industry.
This is a great class for people to go to. It’s well thought out class that is a good one for basic and or a refresher course. My instructor was great and he had good knowledge. I would recommend others to take this class.
