Maritime Electrical Safety (MES)

Maritime Electrical Safety

COURSE OVERVIEW

The AVO Maritime Electrical Safety course is in full compliance with: IEEE Std 45.5-2014 Recommended Practice for Electrical Installations on Shipboard – Safety Considerations NFPA 70E-2018 Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace OSHA 29 CFR 1915 Shipyard Employment OSHA 29 CFR 1910 General Industry Standards

This course is intended for maritime personnel who work on or around electrical equipment and systems rated 50 volts to ground or more in vessels, shipyards, ship breaking, and similar activities where personnel are, or may be, exposed to electrical hazards. Electrical safety compliance for maritime workers is comprised of various regulations and standards with overlapping jurisdictions and requires a thorough understanding of applicable regulations and standards that are identified in the 2006 OSHA Shipyard Employment “Tool Bag” Directive (CPL 02-00-142), which clarifies the importance of electrical safety for all maritime workers.

This directive confirms the applicability of electrical safety regulations in OSHA 29 CFR 1915, Shipyard Employment, 1910.331-.335, Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices (based on NFPA 70E®, “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace”) for electrical safe work practices for vessel construction, repair, ship breaking, and similar activities on both inspected and uninspected vessels, as well as 1910.302-.308, “Design Safety Standards for Electrical Systems” (based on NFPA 70® and “National Electrical Code”) for land based facilities. The ability to interpret these regulations and standards, and understand how to apply the requirements, is essential to preventing electrical accidents involving shock, arc flash, and arc blast; improving power system safety and reliability; and ensuring OSHA compliance.
