Good morning all,
I am hoping that you can assist me. I am doing the annual electrical safety training at my jobsite and am looking for some statistics. Injuries, fires, deaths, that kind of thing. What I am aiming for is to put some perspective to the hazards of "common" voltages. By common I mean household levels, 120V-240V.
My jobsite is a power generation facility and my observation is; that in working around "the big stuff" every day, some of us are losing the respect for lower voltages. I get alot of "Oh, don't worry, it's only 120V."
I have been teaching this for 4 years running now. I try to do a different focus each year in addition to the standards of electrical safety. The class is aimed at all crafts, including the secretaries and office personel.
I have already used a fair bit of the knowledge I have picked up here. Some of the images of melted outlet strips and such have been very handy.

If you happen to have any images or media laying around that you think might help, I would apprieciate it. Gotta keep them awake and interested. [Linked Image]

Thanx a bunch,
Ed

Hi Ed...
Here is a link to a series of PowerPoint presentations developed by the OSHA Office of Training and Education. One of the choices is on Electrical Safety.

The target audience for the electrical presentation is "unqualified" persons.

Hope this is useful. [Linked Image]

Edited because I forgot to put the link in... [Linked Image]

Rogers link may not work.

Here it is again.
http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/construction/electrical_incidents/mainpage.html

If this does not work... the likely reason is because between the words "electrical" and "incidents" is an "underscore" " _ ".

The "auto" formating that creates the link may delete the underscore.
