Comprehensive Electrical Safety Audit
Electrical Safety, NFPA 70EElectrical hazards continue to threaten safety of people and property in the form of shocks, burns, injury, fire and explosion. With electricity having become an indispensable part of our life, electrical risks are to be managed effectively.

In process industries, fires due to electrical reasons are very probable, especially in industries that handle flammable chemicals. In service industries such as information technology, telecommunications, business interruption losses due to electrical hazards (fire in server room, damage of expensive communication equipment, loss of data, fire in cable gallery, etc.) could be substantial.
Typical scope of study
  • Verification of statutory compliance with respect to Indian Electricity rules 
  • Physical inspection to identify electrical hazards (shock, fire, explosion, overloading) and to suggest electrical safety solutions 
  • Review of plant lightning protection system (need, adequacy, installation and maintenance) 
  • Review of static electricity hazards in the plant operations (if applicable) 
  • Review of hazardous area classification and selection of flameproof electrical equipment in the plant, including maintenance aspects (if applicable) 
  • Review of electrical preventive maintenance system (including tests, documentation, history cards, etc).
  • Review of electrical accidents and near misses in the plant to identify the root causes 
  • Review of electrical systems & procedures (work permits, interlocks, lockout tags, etc). 
  • Review of the importance given to electrical safety in the company safety policy, safety committee, continuous electrical risk identification, etc. 
  • Assessing the integrity of insulation of cables by carrying out insulation resistance tests on a sample basis 
  • Review of the earthing system (installation & maintenance aspects), including sample earth resistance tests 
  • To identify areas of overloading by carrying out load current measurements and compared against cable current carrying capacity calculation 
  • Hotspot detection using infra-red hot spot detection equipment/ thermal imaging (as necessary)
  • Pre-Audit Questionnaire 
  • Audit 
  • Physical Inspection 
  • Tests 
  • Discussion 
  • Document review 
  • Management Briefing 
  • Final Report Submission
