“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.
