Electrical Safety Standard

This is the primary working document for electrical workers to reference for electrical safe work practices. This document will take the OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements and customize them to the specific hazards your employees are exposed to. A “one size fits all” approach results in employees sorting through significant inapplicable material in order to find the requirements they are looking for. This tailor-made approach allows the standard to be comprehensive while maintaining maximum relevance for the employee in the field. Less confusion fosters an increased compliance.

Electrical Safety Program Policy

This document outlines the general expectation, program content, program execution strategy, training requirements, audit requirements and procedures, and other required aspects of the general electrical safety program.

Both the Electrical Safety Standard and the Electrical Safety Program Policy will be submitted in draft form for discussion and modified to meet your company’s specific needs. Once the documents are agreed upon, Northcott Consulting will submit final document in editable Word documents as well as pdf files.

Electrical Safety Flow Diagram

This document is a client and electrical worker favorite. The flow diagram uses a flow chart decision tree format that steps workers through the decision process of determining what PPE, documents, and other requirements are needed to execute any task they are faced with safely and in compliance with the company safety standard. Many clients choose to laminate these so they can be included in their workers’ toolboxes wherever they go.

Energized Electrical Work Permit Template

An energized electrical work permit required by the NFPA 70E that is customized for specific approvals and company expectations.

Job Safety Analysis/Job Briefing Checklist Template

NFPA 70E requires a job briefing be conducted prior to any task that involves a potential for exposure to electrical hazards. This is a checklist that steps the employee through the thought process of what to consider in order to execute the task safely. This is an excellent tool to use in conducting the job briefing prior to starting the task.
