ELECTRICAL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
EI can develop an Electrical Safety Program (ESP), which OSHA made a requirement in 1991, to guide your company towards safety. We have the knowledge and resources to be your complete electrical safety partner.
An Electrical Safety Program should address the onsite day-to-day operations of your facility. According to the NFPA 70E Standard, the employer shall implement and document the overall electrical safety program that is built around the activities and risks associated with working with electrical equipment. Part of having a well written electrical safety program will include the hierarchy of risk controls which will identify any deficiencies and gaps that can sometimes be hiding in plain sight.
HIERARCHY OF RISK CONTROLS
|3. Engineering Controls
|5. Administrative Controls
|6. Personal Protective Equipment
Other factors need to be included within the electrical safety program such as job safety planning and job briefings, language that details lockout/tagout procedures and lastly, the auditing process.
With a well written program, you are establishing that your facility is taking electrical safety seriously and you care for your staff. Here at EI, we have a team of employees with years of electrical safety experience and can help you develop the best solutions for your written electrical safety program. EI will ensure you are compliant with the NFPA 70E Standard, evaluate your PPE needs, maintain OSHA compliance and help develop a electrical safety program (ESP) that leads to the safest work environment possible.
