Electrical Risk Assessments for Shock and Arc Flash — May 9, 2024

Utilities and commercial industry often have well-regulated safety management systems. These systems are then adapted to electrical safety, and that’s where the confusion begins. Having visited several operations across the country, it appears that challenges between being pragmatic and being compliant exist.


Does every tasks need a risk assessment? What if it’s troubleshooting and the hazards aren’t known? What if it’s a breakdown? These questions and the confusion around risk assessments don’t benefit electrical safety or the electrical worker.


This webinar is intended to address this confusion by establishing the basics of electrical safety and delineating electrical shock and electrical arc flash.


We’ll discuss the electrical risk assessment requirements of OSHA and consensus standards, as well as introduce three fundamental steps to perform electrical risk assessments. We’ll discuss concepts such as baseline and continuous risk assessment, and cover what written programs are required. We’ll also introduce practical control and mitigation guidance, and how to make these streamlined and practical for the person performing electrical work.
