MARCOM Group Ltd., TheDescription:
MARCOM's "Electrical Safety" Videotape Program reminds employees about electrical hazards they may face in their jobs, and provides the information they need to work safely around low voltage electricity. Electricity is all around us. It lights up our homes... powers much of the machinery and equipment that we use... and runs many of our tools. We are so used to it, most employees "take it for granted." Yet electricity can also be dangerous. Employees need to know how electricity works, and what they should do to protect themselves from its hazards. This program also satisfies the OSHA training requirements under 29 CFR Part 1910.331 (Electrical Safety Standard) for "non-qualified" employees. The Videotape includes information on how electricity works, fuses and circuit breakers, grounding and GFIs, safe work practices, outlets, plugs and extension cords, working with electrical equipment, using ladders around electricity, electrical emergencies, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
Electrical Safety Video and DVD Excerpt:
Electricity is all around us. It lights our work place, powers machinery and kick starts our tools. Without it, daily operations would grind to a halt. But electricity can also be dangerous. Electrical accidents can damage equipment, start fires and cause injuries like burns and of course electric shock. We need to exercise caution whenever we're around electricity. Getting to know electricity inside and out is the only way to be safe. Let's start by reviewing a few fundamentals. Current is the flow of electricity which is measured in amps. Most household and industrial lines can safely carry 15-20 amps. Electrical lines can hold more current if their wires are thicker. It doesn't take much current to cause a serious injury, in fact contact with the amount of electricity needed to power this Christmas tree bulb can be fatal if it passes through a person's heart. Volts is another word we hear a lot about. Volts measure the force behind the current that is flowing.
