Product Line: MARCOM Construction Safety Series
The first in a two-part series on electrocution hazards, MARCOM's Electrocution Hazards In Construction Environments PART I… Types of Hazards and How You Can Protect Yourself Interactive CD-ROM Course discusses the major types of electrocution hazards, and how employees can protect themselves from electrical hazards and electrocution in construction environments. There are a number of causes of shock, electrical burns and electrocution. If the power to electrical equipment is not grounded, the grounding path has been broken, or there are live parts or bare wires, a fault current can travel through your body. Even when a piece of equipment or a tool is properly grounded, it can instantly change from safe to hazardous because of extreme conditions or rough treatment. So employees need to know what hazards to watch out for and how they can protect themselves. Topics covered in this course include electrical hazards and electrocution, major types of electrocution hazards, power lines and GFCI's, power tools and extension cords, lock-out/tag-out and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up Pre and Post tests... establish log-in procedures... even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports... and has a database import/export feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company's personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
