Electrical Safety in the Laboratory
MARCOM's interactive course on Electrical Safety in the Laboratory emphasizes the need for safety when using electricity, and discusses how to reduce the potential for accidents involving electrical shock, fire and explosions.
Today, laboratories rely on a vast array of electrically powered equipment. To work safely with this equipment, employees need to understand how electricity works, be aware of common electrical hazards and know how to use electricity safely. Areas covered in the course include how electricity works, common electrical hazards, fuses, circuit breakers and grounding, using and maintaining electrical equipment, accidents and emergency procedures, 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. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests... and more.
The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
This course discusses how electricity is used throughout a laboratory and how to work with it safely. Upon completing this course, employees should: - Understand how electricity works. - Know the work practices they should use to work with electricity safely. - Be aware of the hazards that electricity can present when working with flammable materials. - Know what to do if an electrical emergency occurs.
