High Voltage Electrical Safety


  REF: EE222  DATES: 8 - 12 Jul 2019  (One Week)  VENUE: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)-Grand Millenium Hotel

Overview:

High voltage electrical systems require the special application of maintenance, repair, test, and safety procedures. Personnel must be trained in special recautions to ensure both personnel and workplace safety. OSHA requires training for all qualified employees performing operations or maintenance work, or who have access to electrical power generation, transmission and distribution installations.  
This course covers the knowledge and skills needed to safely work with energized high-voltage high-energy electric power systems. Principles and procedures for the safe operation and maintenance of high voltage systems are covered. Insulated hand tools, "hot-sticks", proper grounding procedures, proper protective clothing, and thorough job-planning procedures are stressed throughout the course. Properties of electric charge, energy, electric  otential, dielectric stress, capacitive and inductive coupling, and material behavior in electromagnetic fields are covered. The effects of electrical energy on humans and various protection concepts are addressed, as are basic first aid practices. Differential protection schemes, insulation materials, Faraday  ages, equip-potential grounding, live-line tools, and isolation techniques are covered from both the technical and practical perspectives. Various OSHA, IEEE, European and NFPA safety procedures are reviewed. Group exercises include the development of safe-work protocols, use of lockout/tag out (LOTO), maintenance task rehearsal, and equipment preparation. Calculations of fault current, arc-flash hazards, and proper PPE selection are studied. Other technical topics covered include insulation testing (IR/PI/DAR/DD), four-wire Kelvin low-resistance testing, corona detection by ultrasonic and RF detectors, and signature analysis using an infrared imager. Course participants are introduced to the hazards of electrical work and the philosophies of preventing accident and minimizing outage time due to improper safety or work practices. Also included as part of the curriculum are study materials articipants may use at their own pace to continue their learning experience. This course addresses OSHA training requirements established in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269. We will discuss these issues in this course by looking at the fundamental theoretical aspects involved so that the importance of the correct execution of a termination or joint will be brought home to those who attend the course.

objective:

This program is designed for maintenance personnel responsible for High Voltage electrical systems. Dynamic and highly concentrated, this course places maximum emphasis on safety when working on or near energized electrical equipment. Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will be Able to:-

  •  Properly identify voltage levels, controls, and safety distances
  •  Conduct proper inspections
  •  Apply Lockout/Tag out procedures and use equipment
  •  Ground equipment properly
  •  Use high voltage testers
  •  Identify and comply with the appropriate OSHA, NFPA and European standards and regulations

Who Should attend:

This course is designed for electrical engineers, test technicians, industrial & utility electricians, technicians and engineers exposed to voltages 138 KV & below. Supervisors or managers concerned with the safety of electrical workers will find this course especially useful in providing an insight into electrical safety. Course participants are introduced to the hazards of electrical work and the philosophies of preventing accident and minimizing outage time due to improper safety or work practices. Also included as part of the curriculum are study materials participants may use at their own pace to continue their learning experience. This course addresses OSHA training requirements established in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269.
