June 10, 2014 – The oil & gas industry created Enform as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to meeting industry’s safety needs, and it just published “Electrical Safety: A Program Development Guideline”, which provides a framework for large and small companies in the industry to develop and implement electrical safety within a company’s occupational health & safety management system (OHSMS).
The guideline provides direction and information on establishing an electrical safety program, including how to:
• Identify and assess electrical hazards and associated risks related to a work task.
• Document the necessary policies and practices to eliminate or reduce the risk of exposure to electrical hazards in the workplace.
• Document the application of preventive and protective control measures to reduce risk of exposure to electrical hazards to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).
• Train workers to identify the electrical hazards and apply appropriate control measures to reduce risk of exposure.
• Monitor the effectiveness of the control measures.
Companies may use the guideline to:
• Develop an electrical safety program
• Perform an audit or gap analysis of existing systems
• Apply the guideline’s templates, processes, tools and additional resources to improve their existing program.
