While working in the industrial environment, particularly in Oil and Gas, Petrochemical or Power industries, occupational and electrical safety is one of the most important parameter.

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has laid down guidelines regarding safe operations at work place. NEC (National Electrical Code) particularly deals with NFPA 70 E (Standard for electrical safety at work place).

For the safe operation of plant’s equipment and safety of human being, an employee need to be trained as per existing laws of the company or government and should possess right skills and knowledge to complete the given task in the safest way as per the guide lines of international organizations like OSHA.

It’s the responsibility of the company to make sure that before taking up a particular job, the employee of the company is fully aware of not only technical knowledge and skills needed for that job, but the entire safety requirement to complete the job in safe way.

This five day course deals with the occupational safety, particularly electrical safety at work place. The role and scope of NEC (NFPA, NFPA 70 E) in enforcing the culture of safe work environment, which includes the rules and regulations to identify hazards, evaluating hazards and controlling them. This course covers comprehensively the concept of electrical isolation, LOTO (Lock out Tag Out), the PTW (Permit to Work) system.

At the conclusion of the program, the participants should be able to know occupational safety guidelines laid down by OSHA, the role and responsibilities of electrical workman as per NEC, specific mandate of NFPA and NFPA 70 E and will cultivate the habit to work in safe electrical environment and encourage colleagues to follow the same.



Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the need for occupational safety 
  • Know OSHA
