Hands-on electrical training is widely considered the best method of instruction, and The Jacman Group has become an industry leader in Arc Flash Training and Electrical Safety classes. We help companies comply with NFPA 70E and OSHA rules by working with organizations of all sizes to give high voltage training.
About High Voltage Training
Our high voltage training course is suitable for employees who aim to work with high voltage systems. We provide employees with electrical safety training with our OSHA Regulations (1910.269 and others as applicable), Current NFPA 70E Standard, and Current National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) course, which also looks beyond just theory. Attendees will be equipped with a holistic understanding of the safety practices, rules and regulations pertaining to high voltage systems to apply their newfound knowledge to real-world scenarios.
Benefits of High Voltage Training
Aside from increased safety and preventing electrical hazards, additional benefits that will be gained from manual training include:
- Transferable Knowledge: Understanding how to navigate high voltage training systems equip technicians to work with a variety of networks. These include power transformers, control equipment, switchgears, communicating devices, insulators, and others.
- Promoting a Safe Work Environment: If the current flowing through an electric arc is sufficiently strong, it can start a fire. Fires may originate as a result of overheated equipment or conductors carrying excessive current. Extremely powerful arcs may damage equipment and send metal fragments hurtling into the air. In atmospheres that contain explosive gases or vapors or combustible dusts, even low-energy arcs may generate catastrophic explosions, leading to major health implications. When personnel are well-versed in electrical dangers, a safe working environment is created for everyone on the property, potentially saving lives and preventing debilitating, life-altering injuries.
- Avoid OSHA Penalties: Employers must review the workplace, detect electrical and other dangers, choose and supply personal protective equipment (PPE) for their workers, advise them of any hazards, and train competent personnel on how to use the PPE, according to OSHA 1910.132(d) and 1910.335(a)(1)(i). Employers are required to create an electrical safety program that includes safe electrical design, safe electrical maintenance standards, safe work procedures for special electrical equipment, as well as safety-related work practices, according to OSHA 1910 Subpart “S” of the standard. OSHA may request an inspection visit after a workplace event. OSHA may punish your business for a “serious” breach of federal training regulations if there is a lack of personal protective equipment and live electrical equipment components are not properly de-energized or guarded. Your company could sustain significant financial losses as a result of this, in addition to the harm already done by the electrical hazard.
- Dynamic working environment: High voltage technicians must remain innovative and quick-thinking. They should be ready to face challenges that change daily and keep up with the latest regulations, technologies, procedures and local laws. This dynamism keeps the mind sharp and focused.
Which Training Outcomes Should You Expect?
After completing our training, you will be equipped with an understanding of proper protocols and the ability to recognize dangerous situations. You will know how to understand the dangers of arc flash, and determine the proper PPE needed to protect yourself while working with high voltage.
