A component of a facilities electrical safety program is the maintenance and care of their electrical equipment and devices. With preventative maintenance and testing there is no “one size fits all” solution.
Thermal imaging, or Infrared (IR) scans, can identify an object’s temperature by detecting infrared signatures of light to measure heat. Traditional methods of monitoring an electrical system cannot immediately detect the impact arcing, imbalanced loads, excessive harmonics, loose terminations, corroded terminations, and failing equipment have on an electrical system.
In 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Act was created for the private and public sector to make workplaces safer by providing training and enforcing standards. These OSHA standards are enforced through inspections and fines, and can be triggered by severe injuries or deaths, referrals, worker complaints, high-hazard industries, or a follow-up from a previous violation.
