Electrical Safety Self-Assessment

Are you confident that your company’s electrical safety program is up-to-date and comprehensive?

The Electrical Safety Self-Assessment is an electrical safety evaluation tool. You’ll be guided through a series of questions that will help you assess the effectiveness of your electrical safety program, and identify areas that may require further examination. Think of it as a checklist for your electrical safety program.

The Self-Assessment questions focus on three distinct areas: facilities, personnel, and procedures.

Under facilities, you’ll be evaluating company policies and systems for equipment maintenance, tools, repairs, testing, clearance limits, and safe working conditions.

Under personnel, the Self-Assessment will help to focus your attention on the actual work practices of your employees: proper use and care of personal protective equipment, employee training and continuing education, and qualified versus unqualified persons.

In the procedures section, you will examine procedures for performing energized work, de-energizing and re-energizing, lockout/tagout, job planning, performing arc flash hazard analysis, reporting safety concerns, and record-keeping.

Even if you have a good, solid electrical safety program in place, you will likely uncover a few areas that could use some improvement. That’s exactly what the Self-Assessment is design to help you do.
