Overview

 

Many companies who have made their business designing, developing, and manufacturing internal combustion-powered machines are now transitioning to provide similar services and products in the transportation industry. As the world edges closer to full adoption of electric vehicles and machines replacing our internal combustion culture, the safety focus also needs to shift. With internal combustion-powered machines, organizations were concerned with combustible fuels, exposed rotating parts, burns, and hazardous emissions. Now, lethal voltages and currents as safety concerns - arc flash, electrical explosions, burns, fire, and electrocution - are the focus.  


Additionally, industrial facilities operating with internal combustion-powered machines in the past will need to adapt to new processes (higher-level activities), and adopt new procedures (steps to execute the process) that optimize their ability to work on electrified products without incident. This means that the workforce will need to be trained to be safety aware. With electrical energy, there are no moving parts to be seen, no sounds generated, and no rapid temperature gradient to be felt. Workers need to be aware that the usual cues for caution are no longer valid. Being aware of danger is the start.  


Learn the NFPA 70E standard guiding processes, procedures, and tools necessary to safely and confidently interface with daily tasking. Practice using soft tools to analyze work areas and physical tools that minimize high-energy hazards, such as hand tools and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)

 

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the meaning of ISO 26262 and what is being done in the automotive industry

  • Explain the intent of each section and the impact it has organizationally, with your customers and drivers of the standard

  • Clarify how OEM agreements are shared with suppliers, and the impact it has on organizations

  • Derive a working example’s ASIL using HARA and other ISO 26262 practices

  • Reference the provided materials months later for clarification and further understanding

Low-Voltage Training

Our 8-hour low-voltage course focuses on electrical safety training for employees who work on 600V and below. This NFPA 70E-based course goes beyond the theoretical to give attendees a complete understanding of the rules and regulations relating to electrical and arc flash safety and how to apply them in real-world situations. Based on the 2018 NFPA 70E, this course helps you and your employees stay compliant with OSHA regulations, and provides updates from the 2015 NFPA 70E to the 2018 version.

 

Learning Objectives

 

  • Practical compliance with NFPA 70E electrical safety in the workplace
  • How to do table-based hazard assessments using NFPA 70E
  • How to choose personal protective equipment (PPE) based on the NFPA 70E tables
  • Differences between the NEC, NESC, NFPA 70E, and OSHA standards
  • PPE dos and don'ts for workers exposed to shock and electric arc hazards
  • Standards to use in clothing and PPE selection
  • Explanations of arc ratings ATPV and EBT, and how they are applied
  • The ins and outs of flame-resistant (FR), arc-rated (AR) clothing and other shock and arc PPE

Agenda

  • Introduction to Electrical Safety & NFPA 70E
  • Electrical Hazards: Shock, Arc Blast, Arc Flash
  • PPE Selection & Use 
  • Table Task Hazard Analysis
  • Safe Work Practices (OSHA Requirements & Best Practices) 
 

High-Voltage Training

Working on or above 600V to 69 kV industrial high-voltage distribution systems requires qualification. In this training, attendees learn what it means to be HV qualified and what electrical tasks may only be performed by a qualified person.

 Pre-requisite:  Low-Voltage Qualified Training

 

Learning Objectives  

  • Regulations related to being HV Qualified and working safely, including OSHA 1910.269
  • Safe practices working on or near energized equipment
  • Live-line work, tools, and equipment
  • Mobile equipment and electrical hazards
  • De-energized testing
  • Creating a safe work zone (tape in/tape out)
  • Public safety (limited approach) boundaries
  • Minimum approach distance
  • When is it live-line work
  • What tasks do not require a live-line permit
  • Testing and verifying equipment is de-energized
  • Why you must ground
  • Field testing requirements
  • Demonstrate your proficiency of HV skills for our engineer/lineman

Agenda

  • Regulations and Training
  • High-Voltage Hazards, Work Practices, Responsibilities
  • Safety Equipment Use
  • Rules and Policies for High-Voltage Safety
  • Mobile Equipment - High-Voltage Hazards
  • Putting It All Together - High-Voltage Exercise
