Overcoming Challenges of Keeping up With Electrical Safety Compliance
August 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Nearly seven out of 10 companies have reported electrical incident near misses in the past five years, according to a new study conducted by EHS Today and Panduit. What’s more, 40% have reported electrical incidents over that timeframe. And when asked if they’re comfortable identifying electrical hazards, 18% of safety and EHS leaders who responded either said “no” or “probably not.”
Workplace safety is of utmost importance and any level of uncertainty can pose serious risks. Administration of best safety practices can come from a variety of managerial roles, but adherence across all departments and facilities is mandatory to a successful program. Through research conducted by EHS Today and Panduit, we have a better understanding of the challenges many safety professionals face when trying to implement electrical safety technology and policies in their workplace.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- Common challenges companies face when working toward electrical safety program improvements
- Examples of how organizations have implemented innovative safety technology like absence of voltage testers
- Relevant standards and theories that guide electrical safety best practices
- How to make a business case for investing in safety technology that decreases future costs
