Why is Safety Training so Important?

Understanding the hazards associated with electrical power systems and equipment and the dangers of arc flash, arc blast, and the failure to de-energize, as well as the applicable federal standards and regulations, are the responsibilities of more than just facility maintenance personnel and electricians.

As part of Archer Electric’s overall goal of bringing electrical hazard awareness and facility safety compliance to the forefront, we recommend that management attend these sessions to be made aware of the federal standards and ways for your company to work safer. Sessions are recommended for members of the facility safety team, facility health managers, safety directors, and other applicable personnel. This also provides an excellent opportunity to raise and resolve issues of awareness or compliance for worker safety and items of concern directly with the individuals who can request and/or implement the necessary or desired policy changes. Archer Electric of Southern Wisconsin prides itself on making training sessions approachable by all disciplines. Past attendees in management roles have been very grateful for the chance to participate.

Safety training attendees receive two copies of an attendance verification form to update both their personal records as well as their employer’s records for documentation of training.
