Potentially catastrophic thermal hazards (arc flash and flash fire) lurk in the Utility industry. PPE Best Practices will help avoid catastrophic incidents. One of the latest schools of safety thought is centered around building resilience. Resilience is the capacity to respond, absorb, adapt and recover in a disruptive incident. Now, the main question is no longer, only, how do we prevent incidents, but rather, how well will our organization absorb and recover from the event without major injury? Most incidents are the result of human error. Everyone commits errors! The latest NFPA consensus standards provide guidance on developing human performance, uncover protective and preventative PPE best practice measures that help improve safety culture and build organizational resilience.
Learning Objectives include:
- Utilize the latest NFPA consensus standards, (NFPA 70E) to provide guidance on developing human performance to improve the safety culture and build organizational resilience.
- Identify some of the key human error precursors plaguing your organization’s safety program and determine human performance tool remedies to counter these error precursors.
- Understand how various human error precursor “states” impact PPE use and how human performance tools and PPE program “best practices” help improve human performance.
