Complete, Standards-Compliant Electrical Safety Program Development
Today, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) places great emphasis on companies having comprehensive Health and Safety Programs that address all safety issues workers are likely to face on the job. Depending on the discipline, these programs can be complex.
And perhaps no area of workplace health and safety is more complicated than electrical safety--mainly because modern electrical systems themselves are complicated. Covering all the bases to provide a workplace Electrical Safety Program at the level mandated by OSHA 29 CFR §1910.333 is not an easy chore.
OSHA relies on the NFPA 70E electrical safety standard to define the elements of the Electrical Safety Program--and 70E’s requirements are extensive:
- Electrical Safety Programs must provide awareness of all potential electrical hazards.
- They must direct activities appropriate to the electrical hazard risks.
- They shall identify the controls by which they are measured and monitored.
- And many more.
The process of developing an Electrical Safety Program is demanding-–and time consuming. Thankfully, D.L. Steiner’s Electrical Safety Division can jump start your program development. With our years of industry experience and in-depth knowledge of NFPA 70E, we’ll help you accurately interpret the NFPA standard to produce a well-planned and practical Electrical Safety Program that covers all the areas mandated by NFPA 70E:
- Electrical Safety Program principles
- Electrical Safety Program controls
- Electrical Safety Program procedures
- Risk assessment procedure
- Job briefing
Stay Compliant, Stay Safe
Along with program development, D.L. Steiner will also audit your Electrical Safety Program according to NFPA 70E’s three-year auditing interval (see NFPA 70E §110.1[I]). This will ensure your continued compliance with the latest 70E standards and OSHA’s workplace electrical safety mandates. We’ll help you stay safe by staying compliant.
