QEW Training

QEW Training: in the classroom or outside

Cal OSHA has extensive rules on accident prevention, electrical safety, machine guarding, and hazardous materials. A trained expert can tour the workplace and point out opportunities for improvement.

Training classes for QEW

Abstraction Engineering can conduct an informal two-hour training class for a small group of your Qualified Electrical Workers (QEWs) using my standard powerpoint presentation. The QEW training will include electrical hazards, qualifications, risk assessment, PPE, and dramatic YouTube vignettes. Abstraction Engineering will specify the presentation materials, text books, PPE examples, etc.

Typical Scope of Work

Abstraction Engineering would conduct an informal training class consisting of a 2.5 hour presentation (~60 slides) on electrical safety, PPE, and machine construction. Based on prior feedback, this class now includes a lot of “show and tell” and some dramatic “boom” videos from YouTube. The class can be customized to individual company policy and for LOTO practice on real machines.
The client would provide the room, projector, and screen. Recommended text books can be provided as necessary.
