Developing an electrical safety program
Every organization should create an electrical safety program that not only mitigates the hazards, but also provides the recommended best practices for working on and around electrical hazards. The safety program should use the National Fire Protection Association 70E standard for electrical safety in the workplace to create solid electrical safety work and training best practices, as well as procedures to enhance worker safety. In fact, OSHA views the NFPA 70E standard as the primary consensus standard addressing electrical hazards associated with electrical utilization systems. OSHA also uses the 70E standard to support citations for certain violations.
