Electric Safety and Compliance in Utilities based on OSHA, IEEE, and the NESC Standards
August 8-9, 2016 | Denver, CO
Electric utilities place high priorities on providing their workers with safe worksite environment for power line constructions and maintenance. In addition, regulatory agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) provide fundamental rules to create a safe working environment for transmission lines workers. These rules are published in OSHA standards and the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC).
This course covers the foundations of personnel safety for utility work such as:
- Transmission line and substation maintenance including energized and de-energized work
- Ground installations within the right of way of transmission lines; such as buildings, parking lots and roadways
Applicable OSHA standards, IEEE standards and the NESC are discussed in conjunction with each topic. The course provides the engineering justifications (modeling and analysis) of the standards and safety codes. Several real-world cases are presented, studied and analyzed in this course. In addition, some of the tools used to analyze the worksites hazards and to test the safety procedures are discussed.
The attendees will review the foundations of electric safety. They will be able to identify hazards and will be able to design effective safety procedures at worksites.
