Any worker who is exposed to sources of electrical power is at risk. Aren’t electric shocks harmless? Perhaps, but the force and heat produced by an electric arc can damage and destroy human tissue. Through this online training, workers will be informed of potential risks which may arise in the course of their duties and of prevention measures they should implement.

Target Audience

Any workers exposed to electrical hazards.


  • Electrical hazards overview
  • Electrical injuries including shocks, burns, electrocutions and falls
  • Electrical fires

  • Regulatory requirements for working on electrical equipment
  • Define “arc flash”
  • List the dangers of an arc flash
  • Identify common factors that increase the likelihood of an arc flash occurring
  • Describe risk assessment and control methods
  • Describe the basis for determining an arc flash boundary
  • Describe requirements for choosing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
