mobile compliantHAZWOPER: ELECTRICAL SAFETY & LOCKOUT/TAGOUT COURSE OVERVIEW

Hazardous waste is a serious problem that continues to endanger humans, animals, and environmental quality. However, as workers clean up hazardous waste sites, they face safety and health hazards. OSHA issued the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard to protect workers during cleanup operations and help them handle the wastes safely and effectively.

Electricity and sudden releases of hazardous energy cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Most of these injuries and deaths can be avoided if the proper precautions are used. It's important for learners to understand the dangers of electricity and hazardous energy particularly in a hazardous waste environment. They also need to be aware of what measures are in place, that if adhered to, can provide them protection from these hazards.

This HAZWOPER training course is designed to familiarize learners with the basics of electrical safety, how to recognize and avoid electrical hazards, what hazardous energy is, and how to properly perform lockout/tagout procedures to help learners avoid incidents involving electricity and other hazardous energy.
