Mr. Tedesco,



Two of us here at Wayne Dalton Corporation recently attended an electrical
safety seminar.



Two questions:

1. Who is qualified to teach electrical safety courses which would
qualify other company employees? Does this teacher have to be "Licensed"
2. Who is qualified to research and document and install the tags that
are required for all electrical panels?

According to NEC Article 100-70-37 Definitions:

Qualified Person:
One who has skills and knowledge related to the constructions and operation of the electrical epuipment and installations and ""has received safety training on the hazards involved"".

Does one have to attend "school" to receive this training and become qualified?

Who can teach these schools?

Does there have to be a "certificate" involved?

We want to "Qualify" electricians in our facility to be legal in working on "live" circuits @ 480VAC.

Just received a brochure in the mail from these people. They offer workplace electrical safety seminars. Don't know anything about them, was wondering what you (Joe or others) might think. Not a lot of information on this site though.

Accident reports continue to confirm that people responsible for the installation or maintenance of electrical equipment often do not turn the power source off before working on that equipment. Working electrical equipment hot (energized) is a major safety concern to the electrical industry, and we have to question why. The purpose of this article is to alert electrical contractors, electricians, facility owners and managers, and other interested parties to some of the hazards of working on hot equipment and to emphasize the importance of turning the power off before working on electrical circuits.
