Electrical Safety - This topic has gathered more and more attention recently. The additional attention and push to implement or update an Electrical Safety Program has left people and organizations with more questions than answers. The Electrical Safety Program and elements of the program need to be explicit, so employees are properly protected, yet simple enough the requirements are able to be understood by people of different disciplines (Operations, Maintenance, Safety, Engineering, etc.). Regulations require there be processes and a program in place to protect employees from electrical hazards. The Electrical Safety Program is in place to meet these requirements, but also help guide the increase in knowledge of Electrical Safety across multiple disciplines and further develop a culture of electrical safety across the organization.
