Verifying De-energization – Time to Get Serious

Thu, May 18, 2023
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT

Presenter: Sergio A. R. Panetta B.Eng. and M.Eng

Keeping employees safe at work has to be responsibility number one for any company and yet electrical incidents continue to occur yearly despite awareness campaigns and best efforts.

A number of these incidents occur due to unintended contact with energized conductors and one root cause could be the standard Test Before Touch approach that relies on using a meter and opening the electrical cabinet door.

The presentation will provide an overview of relevant codes and standard including NFPA, CSA, UL1436 and OSHA 1910.333, the functional differences between an Absence of Voltage Tester that meets UL1436 and a Voltage Test Port that doesn’t, and why the Test Before Touch approach should be updated to using an approved Absence of Voltage Tester.
