Sadeq abdulwahab management of electrical safety

  1. 1. Dr. Sadeq AlAbdulwahab Middle East Training Manager AVO Training Institute, Inc. Mr. Dennis K. Neitzel, CPE Director Emeritus AVO Training Institute, Inc.
  2. 2. <ul><li>33,000 persons annually injured (all injuries) in US industry, though this country professionally insists to implement electrical safety standards in the industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical hazards are intangible, complicated, dangerous. </li></ul><ul><li>Prevention of electrical hazards requires knowledge of electrical systems, awareness of electrical hazards, understanding of best electrical work practices, and use of personal protective equipment (PPE). </li></ul><ul><li>Prevention of electrical hazards requires professional management of electrical safety in all electrical industries. </li></ul><ul><li>Management of electrical safety is to direct the design, planning, implementation, auditing and inspection of safe electrical work practice program. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Administrator Regulates electrical safety programs and procedures. Engineer Analyzes the electrical hazards. Auditor Links the corporate safety work practice to international standards for electrical safety Inspector Monitors daily electrical work activities
  4. 4. <ul><li>Enhancing internal safety awareness: </li></ul><ul><li>Awards Yielding </li></ul><ul><li>Safety-based contracting </li></ul><ul><li>Training </li></ul><ul><li>Applying External Safety Standards: </li></ul><ul><li>Safety Program </li></ul><ul><li>Inculcation of safety standards </li></ul><ul><li>Authorization of electrical Qualified Person: </li></ul><ul><li>Examination of person’s understanding of safety work practices, electrical hazards and PPE. </li></ul><ul><li>Practical Evaluation of person in performing energization /restoration procedure. </li></ul><ul><li>Control of Safety Documentation: </li></ul><ul><li>Types of Documentation : Permit to Work, Sanction For Test and Limitation of Access. </li></ul><ul><li>Purpose of Documentation: The consensus among Controllers, Operators and technicians. </li></ul><ul><li>Contents of Documentation: work location, switching time, lock numbers, tag codes, and authorized details </li></ul>Promotion of Safety Performance Authorization and Safety Documents
  5. 5. <ul><li>Conducting a periodic Survey </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation of the effectiveness of the Safety Program </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor the correlation between written and act in the practice </li></ul><ul><li>Adapt the program with system development </li></ul><ul><li>Enhance the reality of the Electrical Safety Program </li></ul>Survey of Safe Work Practices Petersen, D. (2000) ©
  6. 6. <ul><li>The electrical hazards analyses comprise: </li></ul><ul><li>Arc flash analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical shock analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Arc blast hazard analysis </li></ul><ul><li>The Electrical Hazards Analyses is needed to help determine: </li></ul><ul><li>Hazard classification </li></ul><ul><li>Personal Protective Equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Hazard Approach Boundaries </li></ul>Electrical Hazards Analysis
  7. 7. <ul><li>Apply Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) by answering 6 questions : </li></ul><ul><li>What could happen in the power system? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the probability of the incident happening? </li></ul><ul><li>If the incident occurs what is the impact? </li></ul><ul><li>What can be done to mitigate the problems or potential incidents? </li></ul><ul><li>What can be done to reduce the impact should the incident occur? </li></ul><ul><li>How much exposure is there to employees and/or property? </li></ul><ul><li>The result of reliability study : </li></ul><ul><li>Main Time To Failure (MTTF) </li></ul><ul><li>Main Time Between Failure (MTBF) </li></ul><ul><li>Main Time Between Maintenance (MTBM) </li></ul><ul><li>Main Time Between Replacement (MTBR) </li></ul><ul><li>Fault Tree Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>First step is t he risk identification to identify the major electrical faults that frequently occur in the company. </li></ul><ul><li>Second Step is in the risk estimation to determine the fault effects on humans, power systems, and corporate production. </li></ul><ul><li>Third Step is the risk evaluation to seek solutions that reduce the risk of electrical faults </li></ul>Electrical Reliability Study Electrical Risk Management
  8. 8. <ul><li>Evaluation of Existing Safe Work Practices. </li></ul><ul><li>Review of Electrical Hazard Analyses. </li></ul><ul><li>Development of Job-Task-Hazards Matrix. </li></ul><ul><li>Observation of maintenance and operations procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment of Training Needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Align the corporate safety program to updated international standards. </li></ul><ul><li>Occupational Safety and Health Administration ( OSHA ) regulations seek to encourage employers and employees to reduce workplace hazards. </li></ul><ul><li>Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ( IEEE ) standards concentrate on explanations of electrical technical activities and calculation of power systems. </li></ul><ul><li>National Fire Protection Association ( NFPA ) standards focus on prevention of fire hazards. NFPA 70E is related to electrical hazards. </li></ul>Safety Needs Assessment Electrical Safety Standards
  9. 9. <ul><li>This certification may represent the corporate obligation of international safety standards. </li></ul><ul><li>It should be approved by safety regulators. </li></ul><ul><li>The insurance cost should depend on certificate grade. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade A : Workplace is electrically Safe. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade B : Workplace is electrically safe, but existing safe work programs and procedures should be updated. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade C : Although company has fair safe work practices, it needs to update Arc Flash Hazard Analysis. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade D : Workplace may face several electrical hazards. Existing safe work practices should be redeveloped. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade F : Workplace is electrically dangerous. New safety program should be designed. </li></ul></ul></ul>Safety Audit Certification Safety Certificate grade
  10. 10. <ul><li>Inspector is the eyes of safety management. </li></ul><ul><li>Inspector should check the validity of safety documentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Inspector should monitor people with respect to Arc Flash labels. </li></ul><ul><li>Inspector reports violation of safety rules. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Arc flash and thermal protection equipment prevents worker from injuries due to arc flash hazards. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Head and eye protection equipment prevents whole face and head from arc and blast hazard. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hand protection equipment prevents worker from receiving an electrical shock. </li></ul></ul></ul>Electrical Safety Inspector Roles PPE Usage and Selection
  11. 11. <ul><li>The management of electrical safety should comprise four units: Administration, Engineering, Audit, and Inspection. </li></ul><ul><li>This approach reduces the Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) and Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR). </li></ul><ul><li>It helps companies to protect workers, reduces accidents, reduces insurance cost, and increase production. </li></ul><ul><li>AVO is ready to support you by constancy required to achieve this approach of electrical safety. </li></ul>
