The E Light Electric online training program is a program designed to help educate our employees in business, project management, supervision, personnel management, lean construction practices, LEED building practices, safety and the E Light Way. We will offer individual models so that you can seek out education in topics that interest you.
This module will introduce you to the hazards of electricity, how to mitigate these hazards and information that every supervisor needs to know if they are going to supervise employees working near energized electrical devices.
NOTE: Before entering the module click on the files for the Electrical Safety Program and the NFPA 70E Guide for Selecting PPE, download these files and print them so you have them to refer to while taking the module. This course consists of two modules. You must complete both modules in order to receive credit for the course. Complete the NFPA 70E Module first, including the test at the end, then return here and complete the Electrical Safety Policy Module and the test found here. YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH TESTS.
Please click on the link below to be directed to the NFPA 70E Introduction Module and then return here and click on the Electrical Safety Policy Module. The module is in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. If you are unable to open the module please contact Scott Searles in IT or Ted Smith for instructions on how to access the module. Review the information contained in the module. When you have completed the module , close the page and return here to take the test.
Complete the 10 question test below and submit your answers. Be sure to include your Name and e-mail address so that we can respond with your grade.
We will issue you a certificate and place a copy in your personnel file if you score an 80% or greater on both tests.

Electrical Safety Certification Refresher Module Quiz
1. Any task requiring work to be performed on electrical equipment or systems where it has been determined that interrupting the electrical power to that equipment or system will cause greater hazard to persons or property is the definition of a ____________________
2. Equipment and circuitry shall be considered to be de-energized and in an electrically safe work condition if all of the following steps have been successfully completed:
All sources of potential power have been identified.
All sources of potential power have been locked out and tagged according to company lock out and tag out procedures
All circuitry and equipment has been tested to ensure that it is de-energized and no voltage is present.
3. For the purposes of this policy energized shall mean that equipment or wiring is a source of or connected to electrical energy in excess of _______volts. Any equipment or wiring that has not been placed in an electrically safe work condition shall be considered to be energized.
4. Removing the panel cover from a 480V distribution panel and leaving the dead front in place while performing circuit testing with a multimeter is classified as a HRC _________________ task.
5. An apprentice is working on a junction box that contains 120v circuitry, the junction box is fed from a panel board that is not energized but the feeders for the panel board are terminated at both distribution point and the panel. The panel is locked out by the supervisors lock only. The apprentice when questioned does not know the exact circuit numbers of the circuits in the junction box. Is this considered energized work?
6. Energized Work Permit (Standard) must be reviewed and approved by the project manager responsible for the work, the Vice President of Operations or the Area Manager responsible for the work and by the Director of Education and Loss Prevention. In an emergency situation an approval may be obtained by voice communication. This is limited to extreme conditions.
7. Before any work can be done on energized electrical equipment, a work permit must be completed and approved. E Light Electric Services has a Standard Work Permit and a Troubleshooting and Testing Work Permit. The Troubleshooting and Testing Work Permit may only be used for specific tasks involving troubleshooting and testing. Once a problem has been identified and it is determined that further energized work will be necessary to repair the problem a Standard Work Permit will need to be completed and approved.
9. Barricades shall be used in conjunction with safety signs where it is necessary to prevent or limit employee access to work areas exposing employees to un-insulated energized conductors or circuit parts.
10. Employees involved in energized work shall be informed of emergency contact numbers for medical and fire personnel and shall be briefed on how to direct emergency responders to the work site and work area should they be required.
