Fluke offers updated electrical safety video
Fluke Corporation has updated its Electrical Measurement Safety interactive video aimed at reducing hazards for people measuring electrical circuits, and helping reduce risk and liability for employers.
Electrical safety compliance training violations were #7 (electrical wiring) and #10 (Electrical, General Requirements) on the 2005 Top 10 List of most frequently cited standards published by OSHA. Regulations include a six-point plan to minimize potential arc flash danger for personnel that addresses issues such as requirements for safety programs, training and use of appropriate tools for safe working conditions.
Fluke’s Electrical Measurement Safety video incorporates the most recent guidelines from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E standard for electrical safety in the workplace, which specifically addresses arc flash hazards.
Available free of charge on CD (one copy per user) through the Fluke website ( www.fluke.com/safety ), the Fluke Electrical Measurement Safety video includes a safety video, a section to help electrical professionals determine whether the test tools they are using meet today’s safety standards, an interview with an arc flash survivor, a safety audit tool and notes to help conduct safety meetings.
