Mining: One of the Most Dangerous Industries for Electrical Safety

In mining sectors, a small spark may result in deadly combustion. Contractor electricians unfamiliar with equipment would benefit from PESDs providing a safer method of performing LOTO. Voltage presence LED indication will warn personnel when hazardous energy is present, preventing accidental contact. The return on investing in electrical safety will provide increased safety, reduced downtime, and peace of mind.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why Mining poses a high risk to electrical safety and how to mitigate those risks
  • A first-hand account of an Electrical & Instrumentation Supervisor in the mining industry
  • The impact GracePESDs have when implemented in Electrical Safety Programs
  • Consolidated research published by NIOSH, OMSHR, MSHA, & CDC
