New Class Offering: How Do I Train My Telecom Workers?

The Need For Training

As more and more telecommunications workers labor to meet the demand for faster internet-based services, they also face some unique electrical safety challenges. 

Telecom workers find themselves working near both low voltage (600 volts and less) and high voltage (>600 volts) lines daily. Telecom workers are typically not utility line workers and are not qualified to work on or near electrical utility lines. According to OSHA 1910.268, they must maintain their Minimum Approach Distance (MAD boundary). 

Working closely to the utility lines puts the telecom worker at risk of shock and arc flash injury. Therefore, they need the proper training to work safely around these hazards.

We Offer Training for Telecom Workers

Our custom Telecom Electrical Safety class directly addresses the challenges these particular workers face. Telecom installation work is a niche when it comes to the tasks performed at proximity to live energized power lines or electrical equipment. This exposure to hazards increases as 5G technologies demand these workers to take on more responsibility. 

This electrical safety training in OSHA telecom regulations, as well as applicable portions of safety rules while working near exposed energized power lines, is a critical life-safety requirement.
