Environments should be designed and maintained with personal safety best practices and safety standards in mind. Enforcing safety standards helps ensure that operators are kept safe and prevented from causing harm to their systems. In this course, you'll learn when and where to use electrostatic discharge straps, mats, and bags. Explore personal safety measures, including disconnecting power before repairing a PC, lifting techniques, electrical fire safety, safety goggles, and air filtration masks. Discover material safety data sheet (MSDS) handling and disposal recommendations, including proper battery disposal, proper toner disposal, and proper disposal of other devices and assets. You will also learn the importance of temperature, humidity-level awareness, and proper ventilation, including equipment placement, dust cleanup, and compressed air and vacuums. Lastly, explore the impact of power surges, under-voltage events, and power outages and discuss when to use battery backup and surge suppressors. This course helps prepare for CompTIA A+ certification exam 220-1102.
