Here’s a surprising fact: more non-electricians die each year from electrical hazards than workers in the electrical trade. These hazards are controllable and worker deaths are preventable.
The SBCTC invites affiliates, apprenticeship programs and contractors to participate in our hazard awareness training on the topic of Electrical Hazards for Non-Electricians. The attached flyer provides details on what the training covers and how to organize a session for your workers.
These training sessions designed for non-electricians are offered at no-cost under our federal OSHA training grant. But, you must schedule your class to be completed by September 30 to take advantage of this safety training opportunity.
These stand-alone safety trainings are great for union groups, apprenticeship programs, journeyman refresher classes, contractors and anyone who wants to expand awareness of electrical hazards and how to control one of our leading causes of construction fatalities.
Here’s how it works:
- You organize a group of 15 or more trainees and host the training at a location of your choice. Our SBCTC Sacramento office facilities may also be available if you want to bring your group to us.
- You choose the length of training that best fits your needs; from 1-4 hours. The optimum time for this training is 2 hours.
- SBCTC provides the instructor and materials (created under our OSHA grant) needed to deliver the training.
Schedule a class soon as the number of awareness trainings we will offer is limited. Contact SBCTC to schedule your class: Email Lynn Schorno at LSCHORNO@sbctc.org or call the SBCTC office at 916-443-3302.
