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 become compliant with NFPA 70E and OSHA requirements by working with organizations of every size to provide low voltage training.
About Low Voltage Training
Our low voltage training course supplies electrical safety training for employees working on 600V and below. The course is based on the NFPA 70E and goes beyond theory, equipping attendees with a thorough understanding of the rules and regulations pertaining to low voltage systems, allowing them to apply their newfound knowledge in a real-world setting.
Benefits of Low Voltage Training
Aside from increased safety and preventing electrical hazards, additional benefits that will be gained from manual training include:
- Creating a Safe Work Environment
If the current involved is great enough, electric arcs can start a fire. Fires can also be created by overheating equipment or by conductors carrying too much current. Extremely high energy arcs can damage equipment, causing fragmented metal to fly in all directions. In atmospheres that contain explosive gases or vapors or combustible dusts, even low-energy arcs can cause violent explosions, leading to dire health consequences. When employees are well-equipped with this knowledge of electrical hazards, this helps to create a safe work environment for everyone within the premises, which potentially saves employees’ lives and prevent disabling lifetime injuries.
- Avoid OSHA Fines
Employers are required by OSHA 1910.132(d) and 1910.335(a)(1)(i) to evaluate the workplace, detect electrical and other dangers, choose and supply PPE for their personnel, educate their staff about any hazards, and train trained staff on how to utilize the PPE. OSHA 1910 Subpart “S” particularly mandates that employers create an electrical safety program that includes safe electrical design, safe electrical maintenance standards, and safe work procedures for unique electrical equipment, in addition to safety-related work practices. OSHA may request an inspection visit after a workplace event. OSHA may punish your business for a “serious” breach of federal training standards when there is lack of personal protective equipment and live electrical equipment components are not appropriately de-energized or guarded. In addition to the harm already done by the electrical hazard, this might result in significant financial losses for your company.
Which Training Outcomes Should You Expect?
After you’ve learned the proper work protocols, you can instantly recognize dangerous scenarios. You will be able to understand the dangers of low voltage arc flash and understand the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that you need to wear in various situations. You will be more confident in working with low voltage systems.
Why Choose The Jacman Group?
The Jacman Group offers a hybrid model of onsite and virtual classes, introducing students to realistic arc flash scenarios. Our classes are hands-on and comprehensive, so that students gain confidence in working in real-world scenarios.
