Electrical Safety at Berkeley Lab

The past year has seen the Lab implement a revised Pub-3000, Chapter 8 and the new Electrical Safety Manual with a fervor! Now, after much feedback, Chapter 8 has been revised again, and Revision 1 of the Electrical Safety Manual is published.  You can access both documents below, which went into effect January 1, 2017.

The revised PUB-3000 Chapter 8, Electrical Safety describes our institutional requirements and processes to ensure electrical safety in the workplace. Revision 1 of the Electrical Safety Manual, which expands on electrical hazard identification and controls following our Integrated Safety Management (ISM) principles.
