About this course…
As is often the case, the supervisors, managers and engineers who are responsible for plant maintenance are not actually the folks performing hands-on maintenance operations. However, it is critical that they understand workplace safety policies and regulations so they can plan for the direction and training of maintenance staff and assure that proper PPE, LOTO and other safety procedures are well understood and followed.
Who should attend…
Supervisors, managers, engineers, and others responsible for electrical workers.
