Thousands of electrical personnel are injured or killed annually on the job because of electrical accidents. Companies lose millions of dollars from unplanned power interruptions or outages due to failing critical electrical assets. Can these two scenarios be eliminated by technology? The answer is yes!
Predictive and safe reliability strategies achieve great safety and great safety is great business. Why?
- Innovative products and services are available for inspections of energized electrical assets in a closed, guarded and safe condition ensuring personnel are never exposed to the dangers of Arc Flash or electrocution.
- Condition based monitoring of critical electrical assets using these reliability strategies can be performed at any time, so asset deterioration can be detected long before it fails completely.
- Data-driven procedures using these reliability strategies are performed with minimal disruption to daily facility operations – in contrast to historical time-based shutdowns required in the past.
- Companies recognize that reliability strategies focused on safety and efficiency save their bottom line and provide for compliance to safety regulations.
Today’s electrical distribution assets are more complex and require a different approach to maintenance. Technology is available today to support data-driven reliable and safe condition based monitoring of these assets enabling companies to recognize safe, effective and profitable outcomes.
