The utilization of national Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, and Canadian Standards Association Z462, Workplace Electrical Safety, in a multidimensional workplace is critical to obtaining zero incidents. This article presents the experiences of an industrial construction contractor toward creating and sustaining an electrical safety culture to eliminate incidents in which safety management strategies were developed as part of comprehensive measures to effectively manage electrical safety in the workplace. © 2012 IEEE.

The performance of electrical systems depends on, among other things, the type and quality of maintenance and the safe operation of the equipment. It is necessary to evaluate the quality of the maintenance and safety procedures utilized within the safe work practice program. The paper advises the use of external auditing of electrical systems and maintenance programs for the advantages it brings to the company. The paper also explores the concept of a possible mandatory certification of 'conformance to safe standards' by a neutral party. Various standards, recommended practices and statutory codes used in different countries are listed in this paper. The paper critically examines these publications and possible shortcomings. Development of a globally valid standard for electrical safety which integrates the best of the various standards is hypothesized and championed here. The paper recommends combining the various electrical standards into a holistic version of a global electrical safety standard for use in your maintenance and electrical safe work practice policies and procedures. © 2014 IEEE.

This paper discusses how leadership qualities of the '12th Man' can improve electrical safety in your organization. Emotionally involving and committing everyone to safety at the level of a truly dedicated fan takes a game plan. The most effective work comes from high performance teams who value trust, communication, problem solving, and shared leadership roles. Job satisfaction is derived from involvement, contribution, and the feelings that come from making a difference. Every person can play a part in creating a superior safe work environment. The attainment of higher performance through the electrical safety program should begin with 'Why not me, Why not us?' [2]. Everyone has the opportunity to be a role model, to be involved in mentoring, to set personal goals, to participate in training, education, and share their ideas to improve safety. Personal growth and industry knowledge can be expanded through involvement in conferences and committees. Being a '12th Man' for electrical safety takes a higher level of commitment; it takes action, perseverance, and passion. © 2015 IEEE. Source
