Join us for the fourth webinar in Grainger’s Serious Injuries and Fatalities (SIFs) webinar series. Paul Zoubek with Zoubek Consulting, LLC and Jason Weatherford with Grainger will be sharing electrical safety insights focused on preventing and mitigating serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs).

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) there were 166 electrical fatalities in 2019, which was a 3.75% increase over 2018 and the highest number of electrical fatalities since 2011. There were also 1,900 nonfatal electrical injuries involving days away from work. This was a 22% increase over 2018. The median number of days away from work for nonfatal electrical injuries was 9 in 2019, a 125% increase over 2018.

Every organization has unique working on or near live electricity needs and circumstances / options that must be evaluated so that proper controls can be put in place to eliminate or reduce the potential for serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs).

At the conclusion of this Webinar, you will have a better understanding of:

  • Relationship between OSHA’s electrical standards and NFPA 70E
