Product Line: MARCOM Construction Safety Series
The second in a two-part series on electrocution hazards, MARCOM's Electrocution Hazards In Construction Environments PART II… Employer Requirements 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, as well as employers' responsibilities in these areas. Construction sites can contain a number of potential electrical hazards. OSHA defines four types of hazards that are associated with electricity, and three types of injuries that result from them. Direct contact with electricity, through a power source, cord or transmission line is the most common type of electrical hazard, and can occur in a number of ways. Employers are required to train workers regarding electrocution hazards and the measures that they should take to control the hazards. Employers must also put procedures into place so that workers can get answers to any questions that they have about working safely around electrocution hazards. Topics covered in this course include electrical hazards and electrocution, power lines and isolation, tools and equipment, Assured Equipment Grounding Conductor Programs, lock-out/tag-out, employee training 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.
