Electricity in the Workplace

The Electrical Personal Protective Equipment PPE program provides requirements to ensure electrical workers are protected from electrical hazards while working on electrical equipment. Employees who work with electrical equipment shall be provided with appropriate electrical PPE and be knowledgeable in the selection, use, limitations, inspection, donning, doffing, and maintenance of PPE. This electrical personal protective equipment procedure provides guidelines for determining when electrical PPE is required and how to select, use and maintain electrical PPE.

This procedure describes electrical hazards, including electrical shock and burns, arc flash burns, arc-blast impacts, and other potential electrical safety hazards. Definitions See Appendix A. An arc flash risk assessment is a process to determine if an arc flash hazard exists.

If it does, the risk assessment shall determine the appropriate safety-related work practices, the arc flash boundary, and the personal protective equipment PPE to be used within the arc flash boundary.

A complete AR Arc-Rated clothing and equipment system that covers the entire body, except for the hands and feet. Arc-Rated apparel is a broad category of clothing designed to protect employees from electrical arc events during completion of energized tasks.

A dangerous condition associated with the possible release of energy caused by an electric arc. A distance from an electrical device or system which are used to specify what activities and personnel are allowed, and what personal protective equipment are required within that distance from the electrical device or system. Two independent boundary categories exist: arc flash and shock protection.

Within shock protection there are also two boundaries defined: limited approach and restricted approach. Distance from exposed live parts within which a person could receive a second-degree burn if an electrical arc flash were to occur. This boundary may only be crossed by a qualified person wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment PPE. The shock protection boundaries identified as limited approach boundary and restricted approach boundary shall be applicable where approaching personnel are exposed to energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.

The distance from an exposed energized electrical conductor or circuit part within which a shock hazard exists. The distance from an exposed energized electrical conductor or circuit part within which there is an increased likelihood of electric shock, due to electrical arc-over combined with inadvertent movement, for personnel working in close proximity to the energized electrical conductor or circuit part.

Free from any electrical connection to a source of potential difference and from electrical charge; not having a potential different from that of the earth. Capable of being inadvertently touched or approached nearer than a safe distance by a person. It is applied to electrical conductors or circuit parts that are not suitably guarded, isolated, or insulated.

The amount of thermal energy impressed on a surface, a certain distance from the source, generated during an electrical arc event. A dangerous condition associated with the possible release of energy caused by contact or approach to energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.

One who has demonstrated the skills and knowledge related to the construction and operation of electrical equipment and installations and has received safety training to identify and avoid the hazards involved. A person who is not a qualified person. Note: The working distance as defined by the table method is fixed, whereas it can vary when the incident energy method is employed. Intentionally coming in contact with energized electrical conductors or circuit parts with the hands, feet, or other body parts, with tools, probes, or with test equipment, regardless of the personal protective equipment PPE a person is wearing.

Determine PPE requirements for specific body parts, as listed below. Hearing protection is required when working in the arc flash boundary. Hearing protective inserts are used to protect the employee in the event of an arc blast.

The sound pressure level of an arc flash incident could exceed decibels. Electrical workers shall wear leather EH-rated footwear. Shoes should be clean and free of oil and debris. Care and Maintenance, Mandatory Appendix J.

Specific requirements can be found in Mandatory Appendix J. Protective items that may be contaminated with grease, oil, flammable liquids or combustible liquids shall not be used.

Introduction This electrical personal protective equipment procedure provides guidelines for determining when electrical PPE is required and how to select, use and maintain electrical PPE. See NFPA 70E-9 Boundary A distance from an electrical device or system which are used to specify what activities and personnel are allowed, and what personal protective equipment are required within that distance from the electrical device or system.

Boundary, Arc Flash Distance from exposed live parts within which a person could receive a second-degree burn if an electrical arc flash were to occur. Boundary, Shock Protection The shock protection boundaries identified as limited approach boundary and restricted approach boundary shall be applicable where approaching personnel are exposed to energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.

Boundary, Limited Approach The distance from an exposed energized electrical conductor or circuit part within which a shock hazard exists.

Boundary, Restricted Approach The distance from an exposed energized electrical conductor or circuit part within which there is an increased likelihood of electric shock, due to electrical arc-over combined with inadvertent movement, for personnel working in close proximity to the energized electrical conductor or circuit part.

De-energized Free from any electrical connection to a source of potential difference and from electrical charge; not having a potential different from that of the earth.

Energized Electrically connected to, or is, a source of voltage. Exposed Capable of being inadvertently touched or approached nearer than a safe distance by a person. Hazard A source of possible injury or damage to health.

Hazardous Involving exposure to at least one hazard. Incident Energy The amount of thermal energy impressed on a surface, a certain distance from the source, generated during an electrical arc event. Live Parts Energized conductive components. Maintenance Activities which promote the operation or extend the life of equipment or systems. Shock Hazard A dangerous condition associated with the possible release of energy caused by contact or approach to energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.

Qualified Person One who has demonstrated the skills and knowledge related to the construction and operation of electrical equipment and installations and has received safety training to identify and avoid the hazards involved. Unqualified Person A person who is not a qualified person.

Working Near Any activity within a limited approach boundary. Working On Intentionally coming in contact with energized electrical conductors or circuit parts with the hands, feet, or other body parts, with tools, probes, or with test equipment, regardless of the personal protective equipment PPE a person is wearing.

Стратмор покачал головой: - Больше никто не знает о существовании кольца. Именно поэтому я и послал за ним Дэвида. Я хотел, чтобы никто ничего не заподозрил. Любопытным шпикам не придет в голову сесть на хвост преподавателю испанского языка. - Он профессор, - поправила его Сьюзан и тут же пожалела об. У нее часто возникало чувство, что Стратмор не слишком высокого мнения о Дэвиде и считает, что она могла бы найти себе кого-то поинтереснее, чем простой преподаватель.  - Коммандер, - сказала она, - если вы инструктировали Дэвида сегодня утром по телефону из машины, кто-то мог перехватить… - Один шанс на миллион, - возразил Стратмор, стараясь ее успокоить.

Двухцветный встал и с презрением посмотрел на Беккера. - Чего вы от меня хотите. Беккер задумался: Я бы хотел, чтобы ты как следует вымыл голову, научился говорить по-человечески и нашел себе работу. Но решил, что хочет от этого парня слишком многого. - Мне нужна кое-какая информация, - сказал. - Проваливал бы ты отсюда.

Но Беккер слишком устал, чтобы обращать внимание на оскорбления. Проваливай и умри. Он повернулся к Росио и заговорил с ней по-испански: - Похоже, я злоупотребил вашим гостеприимством. - Не обращайте на него внимания, - засмеялась.  - Он просто расстроен. Но он получит то, что ему причитается.

Фонтейн был гигантом из гигантов, но Стратмора это как будто не касалось. Он отстаивал перед директором свои идеи со спокойствием невозмутимого боксера-профессионала. Даже президент Соединенных Штатов не решался бросать вызов Фонтейну, что не раз позволял себе Стратмор. Для этого нужен был политический иммунитет - или, как в случае Стратмора, политическая индифферентность. Сьюзан поднялась на верхнюю ступеньку лестницы.

Только его собственные утверждения в электронных посланиях. И конечно… ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Компьютер висел уже почти двадцать часов.
