Safety in Work Practices

  • Richard J. Buschart


The topic of safe work practices is closely related to that of safe maintenance. NFPA 70E indicates that maintenance involves restoring or preserving the condition of electrical facilities; whereas work practices refers to the procedures for personnel who work near, on, or with equipment and systems. They could be viewed as what to do (maintenance) and how to do it (work practices).
