Description

Electric shock and arc flash are potentially very dangerous events that can cause severe or fatal injuries. The damage and injury to the body are proportional to amount of current through the body, and the current density. To ensure adequate safe work practices, technical staff must understand safety regulations, electrical hazards and the use of safe work procedures and protective equipment.
Student completing this course will gain knowledge on safety procedures.
This course is designed to help students to acquire basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity and hazardous areas from the initial nature of the problem.
