Electrical Maintenance Practices that Impact Safety
Improper or neglected maintenance of electrical wiring, mechanisms and equipment not only can lead to noncompliance with NFPA 70E, it significantly can increase the probability of workplace injury or death.
Proper engineering on the front end of a project, including acceptance testing and commissioning prior to initially energizing, ensures a smooth start up and reduces the problems that can keep a facility from coming on line. Many studies also have shown that routine maintenance, including testing of electrical distribution equipment, has increased reliability and minimized downtime for commercial and industrial facilities.
The same can be said about protecting electrical workers who operate or work on energized electrical equipment, as we now can calculate that the incident energy produced by an arcing fault is proportional to its operating time. This aspect of incident energy means that proper maintenance and testing of over-current protective devices (OCPD) not only is an operational issue, but also a safety issue.
OSHA regulations and NFPA requirements for a qualified electrical worker emphasize the need for safety and skills training for electrical and non-electrical workers. An electrical worker may be experienced, but may not meet OSHA’s definition of a qualified person if he or she lacks the safety training and skills required by 29CFR1910.332 and .333.
NFPA 70E SAFETY-RELATED MAINTENANCE
The NFPA 70E Committee states that an electrical power system must be properly designed, properly installed and properly maintained in order to be considered safe to operate or to maintain. Article 200 (Introduction & Scope) in Chapter 2 of NFPA 70E offers general requirements for safety-related maintenance, but does not give any specific details about the methodology for performing electrical maintenance or the frequency to which the different vintages, manufacturers and protective devices should be maintained.
