Electrical Safety in the Workplace

Ray A. Jones, PE,
Jane G. Jones

Protect workers from shock, flash burns, thermal burns, and other electrical hazards!

NFPA's far-reaching Electrical Safety in the Workplace teaches individuals safe work procedures, and provides companies with a process for defining and implementing effective electrical safety programs.

The text draws on the authors' 35 years of experience in developing corporate standards and procedures and electrical safety programs, and is up-to-date with the 1999 NEC® and NFPA 70E®: Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces.

Chapters cover critical information about electrical hazards and hazard analysis, explain risk exposure management, and discuss NFPA codes and documents published by OSHA, NEMA, UL, and ANSI.

Electrical Safety in the Workplace is a must for professionals involved in construction and heavy industry, electrical contractors, and union and trade group trainers.

Concepts applicable to both commercial and industrial activities include:

  • Persuasive statistics on the benefits of electrically safe workplaces, plus proper practices such as lockout/tagout and responsibility of personnel
  • Advice on designing and implementing electrical safety programs
  • Real-life examples and case studies of electrical accidents
  • Tips on working with safety professionals and effective workplace auditing procedures

About the Authors:

Ray A. Jones, PE
Industrial electrical safety has become a passion for Ray and Jane Jones. As a professional electrical engineer, Ray came to understand that electrical safety processes associate with people are more important than those associate with installations and equipment. He and Jane spend their time communicating that message. A User's Guide to Electrical PPE is their fifth book on electrical safety.

Ray has served on several national consensus committees and panels and chairs the NFPA 70E Technical Committee. He has authored many published articles in industry journals and has presented numerous papers and tutorials at technical conferences, all focused on electrical safety issues. Ray retired from DuPont after 35 years of service working with industrial electrical systems and installations.

Jane G. Jones is an editor, author, and technical writer. She has authored and edited numerous technical journal articles and has been the technical writer for various codes and standards associated with electrical safety
