Technical Expert:

  • Lanny Floyd, principal consultant and partner, Electrical Safety Group Inc.; adjunct professor, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Hugh Hoagland, sr. managing partner, ArcWear &

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the importance of electrical safety
  • Define codes and standards as they relate to electrical safety
  • Explore arc flash and safety measures
  • Summarize codes and standards for electrical safety (i.e. NFPA 70E)
  • Analyze the challenges and solutions for electrical safety
  • Understanding how to minimize safety risks in hazardous environments
  • Identify the elements of establishing and maintaining a safe work environment.

In both new and existing facilities, one of the most important factors to consider is ensuring that the work environment is safe. Creating safe electrical work zones is vital to avoid hazards that may risk the lives of your workforce. Meeting regulatory standards and implementing design features to enhance the safety of electrical work zones in facilities are all things that need to be realized to prevent safety hazards. Safety measures should be taken into consideration early in the design phase to not only identify key areas where electrical safety measures need to be taken, but to avoid extra costs later on after equipment installation.
