High Voltage Awareness Training (Aerial Telecommunications)

Course Length: 8 hours

This Electrical Safety For Utilities course provides training for new, multi-craft or experienced electricians, communication linemen, crew technicians, engineers, supervisors and safety managers that install, maintain, repair, troubleshoot or work around power generation, transmission and distribution equipment.

Informal on-the-job training can be dangerous. To ensure adequate safe work practices are followed, personnel must understand electrical hazards, safety regulations, and the use of safe work procedures, protective equipment and standards. This course meets mandated training requirements of OSHA Standards – 29 CFR 1910.268, 269 & 332 and Chapter 296-32 WAC.

This course also improves the ability to interpret OSHA, the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), ASTM, WAC, and other applicable electrical safety regulations. Applying these best practices is essential to preventing electrical accidents, outages and personal injury.
