Electrical Measurement Safety Program

Every day, an average of 9,000 U.S. workers suffer disabling injuries on the job. To help you reduce the level of risk in your work environment, Fluke has created a safety program for electrical measurement - including a free video.


Anyone performing electrical measurements should understand the safety standards and be certain their tools meet code.
