Engineering Controls to Reduce Risk for Electrical Workers

Description

When used as a safety by design method, engineering controls are some of the best investments that can be made in the electrical infrastructure of a facility.

NFPA 70E requires qualified workers to identify sources of electrical hazards, assess the shock and arc flash risk, and implement controls utilizing a hierarchy of risk control methods.  Engineering controls vary widely and can begin with planning for safety before a facility is built or even designed; of course, some methods are more effective than others.

This interactive session will help attendees distinguish higher order engineering control methods from other less effective methods and recognize how they can help protect electrical workers throughout the entire life cycle of a facility.
