Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of PowerSafe?

PowerSafe is a standard for your utility workforce general safety orientation; a sure way for utility companies to be confident that all contractors have received the same awareness level training. PowerSafe is the source for reporting and real-time training records management. This system, written by a representative group of utility contractors and owners, is delivered and administered by Alliance Safety Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving safety in the workplace.

Do I have to join PowerSafe to have my employees take PowerSafe training?

No, but members will receive discounts and invoicing privileges.

How long will it be until I may use our company's username and password?

You will receive an email confirmation providing your company’s username and password. It typically takes up to 4 hours to establish corporate access. You will receive a phone call verifying your company’s information. If it is a weekend or holiday, it may take until the next business day.

Our company has multiple locations. May we have multiple administrators’ usernames and passwords?

Yes.

I forgot my username and/or password. What do I do?

Visit powersafetraining.org and click LOG IN from the main navigation menu.

Click orange Forgot Username/Password button.

Follow the prompts to retrieve your username or password.

NOTE: If you have forgotten both your username and password, go through the steps listed above to retrieve your username first. The username will be emailed to the provided email address and can be used to retrieve your password. ​​

What courses do my employees need to take?

Please contact your supervisor or refer to your owner agreement to determine which PowerSafe courses you need to take.

How do my employees take PowerSafe?

Create a business account and log in by going to www.powersafetraining.org. Click LOG IN from the main navigation menu and then Create a Login. You will receive your business account username and password within four (4) business hours. This will be emailed to the email address given during the creation of this account. (Please check your Spam Box in case the response is filtered to your Spam Mail.)

For non-proctored training, provide students with your company’s username and password and direct them to www.powersafetraining.org. The Accessing Web-based Training tutorial may be helpful in this case.

An administrator of the account will have to follow steps in the PowerSafe database to register each student for proctored training at a Non-ARSC facility. View the Registering for Proctored Courses tutorial for step-by-steps instructions on this process.

If registering for training at an ARSC facility, the administrator will need to call the facility where the training is taking place.

May my employees take PowerSafe courses from their homes?

Yes, but the company must provide students with the company’s username and password. Please be sure your employees’ computers meet the minimum specifications for taking the courses.
