Following facility safety procedures, insert the insulated meter probes with 0.08? tips into any two test point jacks to take a voltage reading with properly rated test equipment.
Step 1: Notify affected employees that machine or equipment will be shut down and locked out.
Step 2: Shut down the machinery or equipment
Step 3: Isolate energy sources with energy-isolating devices. Incorporate Grace PESDs for decreased risk
Step 4: Lockout energy-isolating devices with assigned locks
Step 5: Release or restrain stored or residual energy. Incorporate Grace PESDs for increased productivity.
Step 6: Test machinery to make sure it can’t start up
Voltage is the common denominator in an electrical accident or an arc flash; no voltage means no accident/arc flash. At Grace, our mission has always been to ensure that every electrical worker returns home safely to their family and loved ones. With electrical safety meshed in our DNA and programmed in our brains, we are always striving for ways to improve the workplace electrical safety standards by developing innovative products and solutions that minimize the risk of electrical exposure. PESDs are a result of a constant zeal to find simple, innovative and practical ways of developing electrically safer work conditions that reduce accidents, improve productivity, enhance compliance as well as foster a safety culture.
