Purpose of an Electrical Safety Program
The complexity of your electrical safety program depends on the work environment and electrical related task you expect your employees to conduct.
The basic purpose of your electrical safety program should be to prevent accidents, injuries and equipment damage. Electrical accidents are caused by a combination of several factors—unsafe equipment and/or installation, workplaces made unsafe by the environment, and unsafe work practices. There are various ways physically protecting people from the hazards caused by electricity. These include: insulation, guarding, grounding, and electrical protective devices. Administrative procedures such as safe work-practices, employee training, routine maintenance, inspections and program audits also provide additional measures for protection. For most companies establishing and implementing an electrical safety program can seem to be a difficult task to achieve in house.
