Electricity has long been recognized as a serious occupational hazard. Exposure to electrical current may result in shock, electrocution (fatal), arc explosions, fire and falls.
The Electrical Safety Program and related programs and information listed below are designed to educate the Penn community about the hazards associated with working around electricity and to provide guidance to minimize the risk associated with electrical hazards.
The following materials are related programs and excerpts from Penn's Electrical Safety Program. They are provided here for quick and easy reference and printing. These materials must be used in conjunction with the full Penn Electrical Safety Program.
