Electricity is a serious workplace hazard. May is Electrical Safety Month and we are proud to welcome back David Weingarten, Director of Risk Management at Hypower Inc. Hypower is one of our nation’s largest electrical contractors and David heads their Health, Safety and Environmental Program overseeing implementation of corporate safety policies and procedures to ensure maximum effectiveness of the Hypower Safety Program.
David will be covering what non-electrical contractors need to be aware of on their jobsites. What are the greatest risks associated to electrical power and what should you do to limit injuries associated with them on your sites? Temporary Power and Temporary Lighting are issues all of us face. What should we be doing to ensure their safe operation? How should you deal with overhead powerlines? These are just some of the topics David will be guiding us through on Wednesday, May 12th.
