EVERETT, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Making a mistake while working on a high-energy electrical system can cause serious injury to anyone who fails to take the right safety precautions. That’s why safety is the top priority at Fluke Corporation. In anticipation of National Safety Month in June, Fluke is highlighting its safety content to create more awareness of its free online resources to improve workplace safety.
“Working in and around electrical systems is inherently dangerous and potentially fatal,” said Sean Silvey, product specialist – electrical tools at Fluke. “We build a tremendous number of safety features into all of our tools, but we know there’s a human factor as well. We want people to come home safe to their families and friends every day, so it is a top priority for us to give them information to do their job as safely as possible. We are proud that so many people and organizations rely on our expert content to train their teams on electrical safety.”
To help people better understand the risks inherent in electrical systems and how to avoid making potentially dangerous mistakes, Fluke has created nearly 100 pieces of content on safety in the workplace.
