“The employer shall implement and document an overall electrical safety program that directs activities appropriate for the electrical hazards, voltage, energy level, and circuit conditions.” NFPA 70E 2012 110.3(A) Lewellyn Technology has been a provider of electrical safety services for over 2 decades. Our past experience with arc flash analysis, safety training, and electrical safety consulting provides us with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop a comprehensive electrical safety program for your organization. The Lewellyn electrical safety team removes all the guesswork and provides you with a concise and understandable Electrical Safety Program.
The review and development of an organization’s electrical safety program is completed in three stages:
1. Program Review and Development
Lewellyn safety experts will gather information about your company’s operations to better understand your working conditions and common tasks. We will review the current written program, when applicable, and provide notes and comments on existing policies. From there a 1st draft of the written electrical safety program is created.
2. 1st Draft Discussion and Findings
Lewellyn’s safety team will communicate with your electrical and maintenance teams, via phone conference, to discuss findings and details of the program review and 1st draft of the written program. Changes will be made to the 1st draft and then returned to the client for review.
3. Final Draft Overview and Implementation Process
Lewellyn’s safety team will communicate with the client (those individuals responsible for implementing and enforcing the program) to:
- Go through the “Qualified Person” process for better understanding
- Discuss how to get started with implementation of the program
- A question and answer period related to the new written electrical safety program
Lewellyn Technology will be available for ongoing consultation as the program is implemented.
