Every plant has an electrical safety strategy, but are you taking the right steps to ensure that your program will be a success? In 2017, Plant Services conducted its first-ever survey to find out what tools, techniques, and best practices are being adopted by organizations, and whether these organizations consider their facility to be one that is electrically safe. This on-demand webinar, presented by Plant Services Editor-in-Chief Thomas Wilk, will present key findings from the completed survey.

Motors are getting smarter and so are the relays designed to protect them. These intelligent relays can now detect problems with pumps, wiring, controls, and power systems as well as motors themselves. However, what faults do these relays detect, and how do these devices use the industrial internet to deliver information to the repair technician? This on-demand webinar explains what conditions are measured by smart motor protection relays, and clarify what the different outputs, codes, and alarms mean in the context of actual equipment.

Proper procedures are necessary to improve electrical safety, but did you know that safety can be designed into the electrical system itself to greatly reduce many of these hazards? Designing the right components into your electrical system is key to reducing electrical hazards and enhancing plant safety. Staying on top of critical trends in the electrical environment and changing codes can be challenging. In this on-demand webinar, we discuss the components you can design into your electrical systems to comply with codes and standards, adapt to electrical trends, and make your facility safer.

Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which many may not recover. Identifying and adhering to safety procedures that can help to prevent workplace injury just makes sense. This presentation addresses the definition of lockout/tagout, general industry standard 29 CFR 1910.147, the five main causes of LOTO injuries, and prescribed lockout/tagout procedures.
Presenter(s): Tim Ford, R. Dee Jones, Michael Sa
During this on-demand webinar, we will discuss the latest on NFPA-70E 2012 and what it takes to comply with NFPA-70E 2012.

Anywhere that electricity and people meet, there is a danger of electric shock, especially if water is present. GFCIs are not new, but only in the past year have GFCIs capable of meeting the new UL943C standard become available. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn what you need to know about the new UL943C Standard, industrial GFCI classifications, and how and where to apply these devices to protect against the leading cause of electrical injuries - electrocution.

Electrical cabinets are often designed as a central control point for automation and process control equipment. Safety always should be the first concern before opening a cabinet. It's easy to forget that working inside a cabinet can expose workers to dangerous voltages and short-circuit currents. Industrial control panels are required to have durable and legible labels that indicate the rated voltage, number of phases, and the frequency of any supply in the cabinet. Many panel doors now have arc-flash warning labels.

Work on exposed, energized electrical equipment is commonplace in industrial and commercial facilities. The most common energized electrical work task is troubleshooting of electrical controls and components. Troubleshooting and other energized electrical work tasks expose the worker to the hazards of electrical arc flash and shock. NFPA 70E 2012, "Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace," and OSHA 1910, Subpart S, provide safe work practices for the energized electrical worker who's faced with these electrical hazards.
