An effective electrical safety program is the key to reducing electrical injuries in the workplace. The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has developed a new workplace safety awareness program to assist safety professionals and facility managers with the development or improvement of electrical safety programs. The Level of Awareness on Electrical Hazards and Safety Therefore, attention to safety is the necessary first step in any environmental set up. More than one-third of electrical fatalities, death and injuries, losses of valuable properties are due to electricity (OSHA, ). Electrical Hazards Awareness Page 7 of 49 EFCOG Electrical Safety Improvement Project ELECTRICAL CURRENT Basically, electrical hazards can be categorized into three types. The first and most commonly recognized hazard is electrical shock. The second type of hazard is electrical burns and the third is the effects of blasts which include pressure. ELECTRICAL SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT. The intent of this procedure is to perform a risk assessment, which includes a review of the electrical hazards, the associated foreseeable tasks, and the protective measures that are required in order to maintain a tolerable level of risk. A risk assessment should be performed before work is started.
Electrical safety is a general practice of workers who are exposed to handling and maintaining electrically powered equipment. It is a set of guidelines they follow to mitigate electrical hazards and prevent its dangerous effects in case of an incident. Unable to adhere to electrical safety can lead to accidents, near misses, or even fatalities.

This Third Edition text covers electrical safety requirements and safety-related work practices of OSHA and the National Fire Protection Association electrical safety in the workplace code, NFPA 70E®. Specific topics include electrical safety culture, hazard awareness, lockout/tagout, justification and assessment of working in hazardous Reviews: 9. 3. Control hazards. Once electrical hazards have been recognized and evaluated, they must be controlled. You control electrical hazards in two main ways: create a safe work environment and ; use safe work practices. One way to implement this safety model is to conduct a job hazard analysis (JHA). This involves development of a chart.
