The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has introduced several resources aimed at workers in "occupations that traditionally receive little to no electrical training."
This information is useful for landscapers, roofers, welders, plumbers, truck drivers, and heating, ventilating and air conditioning technicians. According to ESFI, these workers make up 64% of workplace electrical fatalities.
ESFI offers videos and info graphics covering pre-work preparations, worker qualifications, electrical competency limits and overhead power line safety, among other topics to prevent these avoidable tragedies.
