Featured Webcast
Webcast today
Today at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET webcast presenters Zachary Ganster and Martin Kronz will discuss an example of new safety technology–absence of voltage tester (AVT)–employing preventing through design (PtD) principles and focus on its various methods of deployment in an electrical enclosure. They will also discuss how using AVTs will leverage the hierarchy of controls methodology by mitigating potential hazards present when verifying the absence of voltage.
