PowerSafe T&D Baseline
PowerSafe Course Summaries
PowerSafe was developed through a collaborative effort between various utility/power industry representatives to ensure that a standard level of safety awareness for employees and contractors is reached. Each orientation prepares the student to perform various duties in the safest possible manner. Upon successful completion of each specific course, the student will receive a PowerSafe badge that lists the training and its expiration date. Training may be verified by owners and contractors through the PowerSafe secure online database, accessed at www.powersafetraining.org.
