Risk Management & Safety

The Energized Electrical Work Program has been established to ensure that all safety requirements are reviewed and implemented to protect workers from the hazards associated with work on energized electrical circuits and equipment. An Energized Electrical Work Approval Worksheet has been developed to direct appropriate review and approval for projects requiring this type of work. The Energized Electrical Work Instruction provides information on creating the Approval Worksheet and outlines various levels of responsibility concerning energized electrical work. The Energized Electrical Work Instruction and Approval Worksheet are based on the requirements contained in NFPA 70E “Standards for Electrical Safety in the Workplace ” and pertinent OSHA Standards and apply to all UNLV employees and students who may work on energized electrical circuits and equipment.
