NFPA's far-reaching Electrical Safety in the Workplace teaches individuals safe work procedures and provides companies with a process for defining and implementing effective electrical safety programs. The text draws on the authors' 35 years of experience in developing corporate standards and procedures and electrical safety programs, and is up-to-date with the 1999 NECAr and NFPA 70E: Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces. Chapters cover critical information about electrical hazards and hazard analysis, explain risk exposure management, and discuss NFPA codes and documents published by OSHA, NEMA, UL, and ANSI. Concepts applicable to both commercial and industrial activities include: persuasive statistics on the benefits of electrically safe workplaces, plus proper practices such as lockout/tagout and responsibility of personnel; advice on designing and implementing electrical safety programs; real-life examples and case studies of electrical accidents; and tips on working with safety professionals and effective workplace auditing procedures. Electrical Safety in the Workplace is a must for professionals involved in construction and heavy industry, electrical contractors, and union and trade group trainers.Although a sound business investment, up-to-date schematic and wiring diagrams are not necessary for personal safety, but they enable troubleshooting to proceed expeditiously. Electrical single-line diagrams are absolutely necessary.
