safety training is provided the ultimate responsibility lies with the workerThe human factor is part of every accident or injuryThe purpose of this handbook is to identify electrical safety hazards and present ways to minimize or avoid their consequencesIt is a guide for improving electrical safety and contains information about governmental
st and nd RD Electrical Safety Meetings and WorkshopsThe first two RD Electrical Safety Meeting Workshop were held in March of and They were deemed a great success by the participantsThe primary benefits were communication, collaboration, and cooperation between the various sites on their electrical safety programs.
R D Electrical Safety ObjectivesTo share methods and successes from various DOE sites in electrical safety To hear current issues in electric code changes, PPE improvements, CFR, etcTo continue to implement products from EFCOG Electrical Safety Improvement Project To work on improvements in complex wide electrical safety
LANL Engineering StandardsThe purpose of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Engineering Standards is to define the minimum technical requirements for the design, fabrication, construction, commissioning, repair, and replacement of both new and existing equipment and facilities, including both maintenance and modification, for programmatic and facility work at LANL.

Electrical safety in an RD facility or laboratory can be challengingThe rules for RD labs have been broadened in the edition of NFPA ERD labs face special challenges due to one of a kind equipment and the need to do things that are sometimes out of the ordinaryThe lab must follow all requirements of E except as amended by
Best PracticesThe Center of Excellence Best Practices process is intended to communicate initiatives that are innovative, represent actions beyond generally accepted standards or application of standards to new functional area, or that significantly increase the efficiency or effectiveness of electrical safety operations at DOE NNSA Facilities.
