Increasing OSHA regulation and industry's desire to reduce accidents, injuries, and related costs has focused interest on improving industrial electrical safety performance. Efforts to improve the safety of personnel exposed to industrial electrical hazards may be considered part of an overall strategy to eliminate defects in manufacturing processes. This paper presents a blue print for strategy, design, and implementation of processes to link electrical safety to total quality improvement. Based on the experiences of E.I. Du Pont de Nemours and Co., applied methods, results, and future strategies are discussed. A continuous improvement process is applies to several examples, including the previously published Electrically Hazardous Task Classification Flow Sheet
