Safety Module Program

The National Safety Council estimates that there are at least 300 deaths annually from on-the-job electrocutions in the United States.  Most of these are preventable.

Goals

This module's goal is to help ensure that work practices performed on or in proximity to electrical equipment/energy sources are evaluated to determine if proper safety precautions are instituted. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that certain guidelines be adhered to regarding these hazards. This written program is intended to address comprehensively the issues of:

  1. Evaluating and identifying potential energy sources where work is performed
  2. Evaluating the associated potential hazards, communicating information concerning these hazards
  3. Establishing appropriate procedures, and protective measures for our employees
