Dynamic and highly concentrated, this course places maximum emphasis on safety when working on or near energized electrical equipment.
Students will learn the damage electricity can cause to the human body and understand the basic principles of safety in normal and abnormal conditions. They will also learn how to provide assistance in determining severity of potential exposure to Medium Voltage/High Votlage arc flash hazards, planning safe work practices and selecting proper personal protective equipment.
During this High Voltage Safety Training course you will learn to recognize and avoid unsafe work areas. You will also learn correct approach distances. Upon completion, you will have a better understanding of proper voltage rated tools and the use of proper personal protection equipment. By educating workers on issues central to the safe performance of their everyday jobs, loss of life or serious injuries can be reduced and eliminated from your workplace. Your safety and the safety of your coworkers depend on it!
Review National and Provincial Medium Voltage/High Voltage electrical safety standards and regulations.
This One-Day Course Will Focus On The Following Areas:
Interpret and use a single line diagram to write a switching sequence to safely isolate a high voltage electrical device for work. Validate existing operating orders and switching procedures. Develop and maintain mandated documentation for all electrical equipment isolation and maintenance work.
Recognizing Electrical Safety Hazards - Where Do They Exist?
A detailed review of critical electrical safety hazards created by energized electrical equipment:
Resolving Electrical Safety Hazards
Objective: Determine the controls used to protect workers from all energy sources created in the workplace. Benefits of a safe workplace include fewer injuries, lower worker compensation costs, reduced service interruptions, greater protection of capital investment, and increased uptime. This section will provide you with a detailed blueprint that maximizes electrical safety and all the benefits it generates.
