An electrical safety program is a plan designed so that neither workplace conditions, nor the actions of people, expose personnel unnecessarily to electrical hazards. Employers should develop and implement an electrical safety program to give overall safety directions for facility activities related to electrical work. Effective electrical safety programs are a major key in preventing electrical incidents. This paper is based on best practices in developed countries, primarily in the United States as outlined in the IEEE Yellow Book: Guide for Maintenance, Operation and Safety of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems. The purpose is to provide employers the recommended tools to establish an electrical safety policy.
