Many labour laws mandate de-energized electrical work unless it is not “practicable” to do so. However, there are also specific circumstances and associated tasks that are understood to be performed in an energized state. This is necessary to capture and troubleshoot operational activity that can be obtained only when the system is in an energized state. BUT, it must be performed in the strictest adherence to all applicable safety protocols.
Which is exactly the reason you need the Smith & Long Proactive Electrical Maintenance Services Team.
As described within the De-Energized Maintenance section text, there are wide-ranging service and proactive maintenance applications whereby they must be done in a de-energized state. When working in an energized state the Smith & Long Proactive Electrical Maintenance Services Team ensures that a safe, organized workplace, inclusive of appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is provided for all personnel involved.
A Method of Procedure (MOP) plan is developed.
The Method of Procedure plan is communicated.
The Method of Procedure is executed.
When working in an energized state there is no room for shortcuts. Even when a particular condition is considered as an emergency requiring a rapid RESPONSE™, a thoughtful safety-first approach must be the only legitimized approach.
