Too often, the safety training development project is assigned to a “safety expert,” with little electrical knowledge or an electrical expert, with little safety knowledge. It takes a unique set of skills to put together an effective electrical safety program that considers the realities of electrical maintenance operations.
The OSHA Directorate of Compliance states, “If the employer does not de-energize, then suitable safe work practices for the conditions under which the work is to be performed shall be included in the written procedure and strictly enforced.” Therefore, OSHA requires you to have an electrical safety program that addresses employee exposure to specific hazards that exist in your workplace. The program should establish minimum standards to prevent hazardous electrical exposures to personnel and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements applicable to your electrical systems.
