Planned Preventative Maintenance Programs

neta

The deterioration of electrical equipment is expected. And this process begins as soon as the equipment is installed. If this deterioration is not checked and controlled it can cause electrical faults, failures, malfunctions and shutdowns.

An electrical preventative maintenance and testing program lets you discover, and correct, existing and potential hazards that can cause equipment failure and interruption of electrical services.

An electrical preventative maintenance and testing program should consist of routine inspections, testing, and service of power system apparatus such as transformers, cables, circuit breakers and switchgear assemblies; along with associated equipment like control wiring, protective devices and relays, and indicating and metering instruments.

 

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
