This course presents the rules for the practical safeguarding of persons during the installation, operation, or maintenance of electrical supply and communication lines and associated equipment. These rules contain the basic provisions that are to be considered for the safety of employees and the public under the specified conditions. The course is intended to (1) provide the rules that cover supply and communication lines, equipment, and associated work practices employed by a public or private electric supply, communication, railway, or similar; (2) describe the responsibilities of the utilities, authorized contractors, or other entities, as applicable, performing design, construction, operation, or maintenance tasks for electric supply or communication lines or equipment covered by this Code.
The course materials are based entirely on the National Electrical Safety Code C2-2023. It will be necessary for the student to obtain a copy of the National Electrical Safety Code C2-2023 or have access to a copy of this code. This is a very useful resource and is recommended that all practicing electrical or project engineers involved in electrical supply and communication lines and associated equipment engineering and design, construction, or maintenance should be familiar with and up to date with the rules provided in this code.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
