In keeping with AVO Training’s philosophy of offering the types of Electrical Safety Training Courses industry and utilities require today, this new course subject has been added to the over 50 courses currently available at the Institute.

Maritime workers face a maze of regulations with overlapping jurisdictions. This course was developed to address and clarify electrical safety compliance necessary for workers. It is the only course of its type that combines OSHA Maritime and NFPA 70E compliance issues.

This course is intended for any maritime personnel who work on or around electrical equipment rated at 50 volts or more and is one of the only electrical safety training courses of its type offered to the Maritime Industry.

There is a confusing maze of regulations with overlapping jurisdictions that protect maritime workers from the dangers of electrical hazards. In 2006, the OSHA’s Shipyard Employment “Tool Bag” Directive (CPL 02-00-142) clarified the importance of electrical safety for Maritime workers. This Directive confirms the applicability of electrical safety regulations in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.301-308 (for land based facilities) and .331-.335 for vessel construction, repair, and ship breaking activities on both inspected and uninspected vessels.

The NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace provides industry accepted guidelines for ensuring an electrically safe work environment. The ability to interpret this standard and understand how to apply the requirements is essential to preventing electrical accidents, improving power system reliability, and ensuring OSHA compliance.
