Electrical Workshop Scheduled

Electrocutions are the second-leading cause of fatalities in construction nationally. In Michigan in 2003, they were the number one cause of construction fatalities. This program will explain and illustrate safety practices the electrical industry itself uses before performing work on energized overhead lines. The importance of recognizing and eliminating hazards will be emphasized to avoid the possibility of contact with energized lines.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) Consultation Education and Training (CET) Division offers seminars, courses and workshops statewide. These programs have a small fee and are open to general public attendance. The MIOSHA program is part of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

This seminar offers CEUs/Maintenance points and is part of the MIOSHA Training Institute (MTI) Level 1 certification program. For more information, visit the MIOSHA website at www.michigan.gov/mioshatraining.

During these difficult economic times, MIOSHA has dedicated $50,000 for MTI scholarships, which will cover half of the course costs for any students. Visit the above MIOSHA website to apply.
