Having an awareness of electrical safety is required for all faculty, staff & students to support a working and learning environment that minimized the potential for electrical injuries and fires. The Department of Risk Management & Safety, the Physical Plant Department and the UE Safety Committee worked together to compile a webpage offering safety talks on basic issues, such as general electrical safety. For this and many other topics, use your UVM net ID and password to access the Safety Talks page.
OSHA has specific program requirements for the control of hazardous energy of permanently wired equipment that requires maintenance and servicing. Physical Plant has developed UVM’s best resource for guiding departments that have the same types of exposures and need to develop their own program. Both written program and procedure forms are available on their website for developing a Lockout Tagout Program.
