Setting Up a Qualified Electrical Worker Program At Your Facility

OSHA and NFPA talk about setting up a qualified electrical worker program but what exactly does that mean? How do we get there? And what training is needed? TPC Trainco Electrical Instructor Mike Leitzel will guide you through setting up your own QEW program at your facility and answer your questions to keep your employees safe.
