This is the fourth course covering the hazards described in our Construction Focus Four Hazards series. The Focus Four Hazards series was developed to help educate workers in the construction industry about understanding the hazards they face, and knowing what their employer's responsibilities are to protect workers from workplace hazards. Once students complete this course they will be able to identify common electrocution hazards, describe types of electrocution hazards, protect themselves from electrocution hazards, and recognize employer requirements to protect workers from electrocution hazards.
