Course Overview


The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) uses the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) and Survey of Occupational Injuries (SOII) to distill information specifically pertaining to fatal and nonfatal occupational electrical injuries. There were 166 electrical fatalities in 2019, which was a 3.75% increase over 2018 and the highest number of electrical fatalities since 2011. Originally developed at OSHA’s request, NFPA 70E helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. This course expands on this information, addressing electrical contact, which can prove fatal if not addressed properly and swiftly. It covers the basic physics and mechanics of electricity, how the body is a conductor, the effect of electricity on the body, recognizing and assessing a shock event, and the provisioning of first aid after the release. Use this course among all staff who either work with or supervise this type of work to ensure a consistent understanding of important safety precautions.
