Event Description

A substantial uptake in electrical safety has been observed over the past decade. Many interactions with industry show that companies have trained workers and procured arc-rated personal protective equipment. However, soon afterward, the electrical safety program became dormant. Incident investigations show that industries following this trend have experienced serious electrical incidents. Continuous improvement is key to avoiding this. CI is now more crucial than ever before to protect against electrical shock and arc-flash injuries and fatalities.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss CI techniques for both training and PPE. Is there more to PPE than just arc rating? We’ll demonstrate how to optimize a written safety program, making it more useful to employees.

Then, we’ll offer a recap on the electrical maintenance “brilliant at basics” concept. The risk assessment process will be integrated into these topics using practical exercises. The presentation will conclude with the “Electrical Safety Cycle” concept and tips to implement this electrical safety program in practice.
