How to Prevent Electrical Violations at Work

Bad Power Cord ViolationElectrical problems are one of the leading causes of OSHA violations for businesses across the United States. Even if your workers do not directly deal with electrical components during their day-to-day tasks, it is important for all employees to know how to stay safe around electricity.

Electricity is dangerous for workers and OSHA violations are expensive. Keep costs down while protecting your workers with TC Risk Management OSHA electrical safety training.

Why is electricity more dangerous than other workplace hazards?

Almost all jobsites use electricity in some form, making its risks unavoidable. Electricity can cause shocks to people and equipment. Electrical currents can cause permanent disability or be fatal, depending on the charge. Strong surges of electricity can destroy equipment components requiring expensive repairs or replacement.

Sparks from frayed wires or faulty equipment can lead to fires and explosions. Even a surge-protected outlet in an office can pose a fire hazard if flammable objects are placed too close. Severe weather can overload circuits, another reason all employees should be trained and prepared for dealing with electrical disasters.
