The A to Z of an Electrical Safety Program

Have you implemented an Electrical Safety Program (ESP)? If you have, on what did you base the ESP’s framework or Table of Contents? Did you consider applicable Occupational Health & Safety Management System standards (e.g. CSA Z1000 or ANSI Z10) for guidance on the content you should have developed in your Electrical Safety Program? Do the requirements provided in the ESP you developed meet acceptable due diligence requirements? Have you audited your program documentation, or had it audited by a third-party subject matter expert?

This paper will review an example ESP framework and identify where you may have fallen short in developing your ESP. It will identify a project-based approach to execute the development of an Electrical Safety Program, A to Z.
