ELECTRICAL SAFETY

Working around equipment that contains hazardous energy can cause serious and even life threatening injuries. Hazardous energy includes electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal, chemical, moving parts and any other form of energy that presents a physical hazard.

The University's Electrical Safety and Lockout/Tagout Safety Programs developed by Facilities Management, applies to all University personnel who perform work activities on equipment where hazardous energy sources are present.

EHS will provide technical assistance to non-Facilities departments and their designated personnel, who must meet compliance with the Programs' safety procedures. EHS will facilitate with hazard assessments and training; collaborate to develop applicable workplace procedures and controls; and perform periodic monitoring to assure safety work practices are being followed.
