Electrical Safety Training
ABOUT THE COURSE
Electrical Safety Training is developed to familiarize engineers with electrical safety system grounding and bounding issues associated with solidly grounded system. The training can serve as an introduction to earthing and grounding for engineers with little or no professional electrical design experience.
As required by various authority such as Suruhanjaya Tenaga, MSIEC and TNB, it is essential to ascertain the earthing arrangement at the source of supply of an installation and the type of path intended for earth fault current to flow in order to select the appropriate protective measures to be used for the protection against electric shock. In this two (2) days training, the participant will get to learn and gain new knowledge on installation of earthing and grounding based on law requirements in Malaysia
At the end of course, the participants should be able to:
- Understand application between OSHA 1994 and FMA 1967
- Learn how to effectively earth and ground the system
- Understand the main occupational hazard and the health risks related to certain electrical system
- Evaluate the risks associated with the identified hazards and make recommendations on eliminating or reducing the risks of these hazards.
- Understand the Electrical Supply Act 1990 requirement
- Understand the maintenance issues and testing method applicable.
The content of training are mainly includes the followings:
- Background of earthing and grounding
- Definitions from OSHA 1994 and FMA 1967
- Type of earthing and grounding based on/depend on surface type
- What is the right installation for earthing and grounding?
- Benefits of earthing and grounding system.
- Factors influencing resistance of earthing and grounding system
- Requirement of Electrical Supply Act 1990
- Sizing equipment grounding (earthing) and grounding electrode conductors
- Maintenance Issues and Testing Methods
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- Front end engineers and supervisors from safety, maintenance, production and projects
- Workers who are directly exposed to direct electrical safety hazards
