Whether you have a mature electrical safety program or just beginning to put a program in place, this webinar will provide tips for improvement and achieving results in preventing mishaps in electrical energy, control and communications systems critical to your business. For over three decades, injuries and fatalities from electrical energy have steadily declined in the United States. Even so, contact with electrical energy remains the 7th leading cause of workplace fatality, one in 13 lost time injuries from electrical contact is fatal and approximately 2000 workers are hospitalized for non-fatal electrical injuries annually.
