Electricity has long been recognized as a serious workplace hazard. OSHA's electrical standards are designed to protect employees exposed to dangers such as electric shock, electrocution, fires, and explosions. Join OSHA, Pennsylvania One Call, and Local 98 as we cover electrical hazards and PA One Call.
