  • Why You should take this seminar

    Receive an overview of the necessary tools to construct a cost effective preventive maintenance program for electrical systems and equipment that are in industrial, institutional and commercial buildings.

    Learn the techniques to help guard against premature damage from power surges, spikes, transients and every day usage. A well maintained system will lessen the chance of electrical failures. The recommended practice taught in this class is to reduce hazards to life and property that can result from failure or malfunction of industrial electrical equipment.

    As new equipment is installed and used, a process of normal deterioration begins. Unchecked, this deterioration can and will cause malfunction or electrical failure. Deterioration can be accelerated by such factors as hostile environments, overloads or service duty cycles. An effective EPM program identifies and recognizes these factors and provides a measure of coping with them. OSHA and NFPA 70E both recognize the importance of electrical equipment maintenance. OSHA references the requirement in 29CFR 1910, and chapter two of the NFPA 70E pertains to the issues and procedures of equipment maintenance.
