Hi,
I, and my coworkers are in an interesting predicament. We were absorbed into another company about a year ago. This company owns and operates power generation plants. We recently were given the electrical safety proceedures for the company (that we should have been following since day 1).

One of the sections states that "No Company X employee shall work on or near any voltage over 600V." This is quite problematic in a utility that is generating at 13.8KV. We have extensive 4160V equipment.

While I do agree that there are practically no reasons that I can think of to work any of these medium voltages hot, we do regularly have to work near them. (And even with LOTO, no medium voltage system can be considered de-energized until it is grounded.)

Our problem is this: we have been tasked with coming up with a new proceedure that allows for us to continue doing our core job duties. One of the stipulations that has been passed to us is that we will need training. That is the tricky part. I have been scouring the web for decent medium voltage training sources and have come up empty.

Is anyone here familiar with/know of/affiliated with/saw a name written on a bathroom wall/heard about any place that does this?

What we would need is medium voltage safety, grounding, and operation (breaker racking principles). Our personel know this, we just have to PROVE that we know it by having a training document.

P.S. Our original training documents left with the original company, 3 companies ago.

Thank you.
Ed
