Energized Electrical Work Permit - Yes or No?

All energized electrical work tasks performed require an Energized Electrical Work Permit (EEWP) to be issued unless exempted as outlined in the CSA Z462 Workplace electrical safety Standard or NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. There is confusion in the industry interpretation and application of an Energized Electrical Work Permit and Qualified Persons may also have a false perception that it is against the law to perform energized electrical work tasks. In this webinar, given by Terry Becker, P.E, Electrical Safety Specialist, explores the topic of ensuring your company’s Electrical Safety Program clearly documents the EEWP policy and that exemptions ensure clarity and value-added in eliminating exposure to arc flash and shock hazards and doesn’t result in unnecessary bureaucracy that doesn’t add value. Following these steps ensure that Qualified Persons will have certainty and confidence when they do perform energized electrical work tasks.
