OSHA concluded that effective management of worker safety and health protection is a decisive factor in reducing the extent and the severity of work-related injuries. Electrical safety inspections must be conducted in order to verify full compliance with OSHA and NFPA electrical safety regulations and standards.
This live webcast will provide guidelines for developing an electrical safety inspection program. The inspection program should be carried out by a knowledgeable, qualified person in order to identify deficiencies in electrical equipment or systems and to correct, or properly document, any deficiencies found. One way to ensure that the inspection program is on target is to have electrically qualified company safety personnel conduct the inspections. The written electrical safety inspection program should be reviewed on a periodic basis, by qualified persons, to ensure that the check-lists and procedures are current and are being utilized. Inspections should include a review of the entire electrical safe work program for energized and deenergized work.
