Unqualified workers may have some electrical knowledge and experience but are not qualified to work on energized equipment. 
They lack experience and training in identifying and preventing dangers associated with working on or near electrical hazards.

What should unqualified workers know?                     

  • The risks of energized equipment                                                    
  • How to protect themselves and others when they work around electricity                                                                                          
  • What tasks can be done only by qualified workers                        
  • Always respect warning signs and barriers designed to protect them from live parts
  • These requirements aren’t limited to the electric utility industry – construction has the highest rate of fatal electric injuries. Any workplace with energized equipment should make sure their unqualified workers know this information.
  • The best way to address safety for unqualified workers is to include them in your training plan. Following the same structure, you use for your qualified electric workers will help you provide a safe, productive workplace.
