Improper work on electrical equipment can cause accidents that lead to injuries. Our QEW training program can educate employees on the appropriate safety practices for handling electrical hazards. Prioritizing training is essential for maintaining a safe work environment and minimizing accidents.

A certified electrical safety worker with the proper training has the skill to handle electrical accidents and is also trained to identify and prevent them. Our program will train qualified electrical workers to identify potential risks by understanding equipment parts and voltage, conducting inspections, risk assessments, and more.

When employees can anticipate risks, such as an arc flash, they can take the necessary steps to prevent potential electrical hazards.

FCS QEW training is based on the current NFPA and OSHA regulations. The training can help your employees understand and comply with those standards. In addition to improving safety, meeting regulations can help your organization avoid lawsuits or legal liabilities, financial losses, and possible damage to your reputation.

With the proper training, employees will have the skills to work safely and productively. Your team will be able to prevent and minimize accidents as well as property damage caused by electrical failures. By doing so, they can reduce the downtime that usually occurs due to injury or property damage and ensure operations continue running smoothly.
