Employee & Contractor Guideline
Most facilities have maintenance staff or on-site electricians who, at times, may need to perform work on live electrical equipment. Therefore, the qualified staff needs to perform live electrical work. The electrical safety plan is your first line of defense against these types of incidents and addresses how to evaluate the risks and the lays out the safe work practices your staff should be following.
The purpose of the program is to ensure that employees who face a risk of electrical shock or related injuries are trained in appropriate electrical safety work practices. In addition, employees that work around—but not on—electrical systems must be trained in the hazards associated with electricity.
The level of electrical safety training provided is dependent on whether the employee is classified as a “qualified person” or “unqualified person.” Some individuals may receive training for specific tasks and may be considered “task qualified”. A person can be considered qualified with respect to certain equipment but still be unqualified for others.
Your Electrical Safety Program should include procedures necessary to address the electrical design and installation. From equipment labeling to guarding of live parts, the program should help you recognize the hazards and enable you to deal with them in the appropriate and safe manner.
The purpose of this form is to summarize and record all of the details BEFORE each energized work activity takes place. The briefing must cover such subjects as:
The program helps coordinate training for supervisors and employees, provides technical assistance and maintains overall effectiveness of electrical safety on a periodic basis.
The program helps to ensure that employees who face a risk of electrical shock or related injuries are trained in appropriate electrical safety work practices and compliant with NFPA 70E.
Electrical Safety Program describes work practices for both qualified and unqualified persons working on or near premises wiring, wiring for connection to supply, other wiring and inspection.
As qualified electrical safety experts, we can work with you to bring your facility in compliance.
