Prevent Injuries and Protect Your Assets with Electrical Safety Training
Protect your workers and assets with our Electrical Safety Train the Trainer course based on NFPA 70E®, OSHA, and industry best practices. Taught by experienced instructors who have real-world electrical skills experience and are trained professional instructors, we can teach to almost any task, electrical hazard or equipment for any type of industry. All training can be customized to your needs and can include hands-on training and validation.
The Train the Trainer Electrical Safety & Arc Flash Training is designed for training those who need to provide electrical safety training for Qualified Persons (those who work on and around energized electrical equipment) and is based on the most current version of NFPA 70E®, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.331-335, and industry best practices. A Martin Technical electrical safety expert will provide detailed instruction and teach-back for Qualified Person safety training requirements and including hands-on activities and real-world scenarios to prepare workers to identify electrical hazards and how to work safe around them.

9. Apply arc flash and shock hazard warning information
10. Use safe work practices to help prevent accidents and injuries
11. How to choose, use and care for electrical safety PPE
12. Use and care for testing equipment and tools
13. The importance of electrical preventive maintenance for electrical safety
14. Electrical preventive maintenance best practices
15. Electrical safety concerns for special equipment and hazardous locations
16. How to apply their knowledge of arc flash safety
For the programs that include the Safety Qualified™ Electrical Worker Certification, students will put their knowledge and skills to test by demonstrating how to safely work on and around electrical equipment.
Different scenarios are created with live, finger safe voltages (24 volt) equipment, and the students must go through the process of creating an electrically safe environment before working, including proper circuit identification, and use of multimeters.
Our electrical safety training programs include our hands-on training and demonstration kits which provide examples of electrical PPE, tools and test equipment. An electrical disconnect box is also part of the demonstration kits.
Training on equipment at your location can also be done to provide students with real-world application of electrical safety practices.
Testing can be done through observation, oral quizzing or written tests.
Students will be provided with Uncle Monkey’s Electrical Safety Field Guide written by Martin Technical. This field guide is based on the most recent version of NFPA 70E® which is referenced throughout the training.
This pocket book summarizes OSHA regulations as well as NFPA 70E® and is an excellent reference book for on-the-job information.
Students completing the course will receive a Safety Qualified™ – Electrical Safety Trained hard hat sticker as an important safety reminder to follow electrical safety policies and procedures.
