This 8-hour course provides electrical workers and facility managers with clear and consistent instructions and procedures for temporary grounding of deenergized and isolated high-voltage equipment (over 600 volts) for the purpose of bare hand contact.
This course has been developed from industry standards, the evaluation of the existing facilities, and from surveys of the many existing power generation, transmission, and distribution facilities.
This course offers practical guidelines in understanding the qualitative effects of electrical current on the human body, the basic criteria for safe grounding practices, implementation of the criteria, and examples for derivation of safe exposure voltage for shock survival, protective ground cable sizing, and power plant grounding worker exposure voltage calculations.
The course materials are based entirely on the Unified States Department of the Interior, Facilities Instructions, Standards, and Techniques Volume 5-1.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
