FAQ'S


Why test, inspect and maintain my electrical equipment?

Electrical equipment deterioration is inevitable, but equipment failure is not. Deterioration of electrical equipment is accelerated by environmental, service and application factors. Burlington Electrical Testing Company can identify and present solutions to correct these problems through testing, inspection and maintenance of this equipment at your facility.

What is a NETA company, and why should I choose a Full-Member NETA company over a manufacturer or non-NETA-certified company?

Engaging a Full-Member NETA-certified company ensures technicians who are trained and experienced concerning the apparatus and systems being evaluated and who are capable of conducting these tests in a safe manner. NETA technicians are certified per ANSI/NETA ETT-2000. A Full NETA company ensures proper documentation of testing activities, calibration of all test equipment, and compliance with the strict NETA safety and training guidelines. Being professionally independent of manufacturers, suppliers and installers of equipment, a Full-Member NETA Company is a third-party entity that can function as an unbiased testing authority.

How often do I need to have my electrical equipment tested and maintained?

Frequency of service can vary from facility to facility. A good source of information on this subject is the NFPA 70B, which gives guidelines on the length of time between maintenance for major types of electrical distribution equipment. Non-outage work, such as infrared inspections and transformer oil analysis, is typically done annually.

NFPA 70E 2015
ARC FLASH HAZARDS

Is your site NFPA 2015 compliant? Is your staff "qualified" or "unqualified" to work on electrical equipment?

Burlington Electrical Testing conducts onsite Arc Flash Hazard Awareness training which provides an understanding of the federal laws (OSHA), potential dangers, as well as the accepted safety practices when personnel are to be exposed to electrical hazards.

This includes defining an arc flash and its effects on the human body, complying with Arc Flash labeling, and the selection and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The Arc Flash Hazard Awareness class is to be part of your overall electrical safety program; therefore, your staff will require a working knowledge of the electrical equipment at their facility, along with the tools, test equipment and available PPE.

The one day class is presented by an instructor certified by NFPA, and the NJACT / NECA to instruct Electrical Safety Related Work Practices based on NFPA70E 2015. Curriculum follows the accompanying Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices text modules and will focus on:

1. Electrical Safety Culture
2. Electrical Hazard Awareness
3. OSHA and NFPA 70E concepts
4. Electrical Safety Program
5. The Control of Hazardous Energy
6. Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
7. Personal Protective Equipment
8. Existing Electrical Equipment
