“Be Prepared.” It’s more than a motto. It’s key to Risk Management, and now necessary for compliance with 2015 NFPA 70E. More importantly, it’s what we need to do to prevent electrical system failures and accidents.
Prevention starts with a systems approach to electrical system maintenance…maintenance that is on-going (with continuous improvement) and not an Every Ten Year project.
Stage One in electrical prevention maintenance is an infrared analysis of the electrical system. During this non-destructive, low cost process, technicians use specialized infrared (IR) cameras to detect thermal hot spots and predict possible electrical equipment in failure mode.
