As summer approaches a real concern should be assuring proper electrical bonding of handrails, diving board jigs, underwater lights, slides, stairs and other metal components in community pools, hotel and apartment pools, and health and swim club pools. The National Electrical Code requires proper bonding during construction of pools and some municipalities require periodic inspections, testing and certification of the bonding. Is your city or state one such municipality? In the end, it is ultimately the responsibility of the pool owners and management to ensure proper bonding to guarantee the safety of their clientele.
Is your site NFPA 2021 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 2018. Curriculum follows the accompanying Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices text modules and will focus on:
1. Electrical Safety Culture
