Electrical Safety

GT launched its first written Electrical Safety Program in December 2014 to provide detailed safety guidance for all GT Employees that work around or with electrical equipment. EHS is working with Facilities Management to develop the required Electrical Safety Training programs that match the needs of the different classes of employees. The writing of the program was a collaborative effort between EHS, Facilities Management, and external consulting Engineers and Safety Professionals. The program was written to meet the requirements of the National Electric Code, NFPA 70E, and several sections of 29 CFR 1910. Revisions to the program will be made during in annual review process.
