Electrical Measurement Safety Program

When electrical problems occur and you are called in to troubleshoot them, time is often a critical factor. But safety must always remain priority number one: your safety and that of those around you.

Working safely, while making electrical measurements, is not rocket science. It’s a simple combination of careful planning, safe practices and using the right tools in the right way. To help you do this, we have put together this safety program which includes detailed chapters on safety standards, measurement hazards, meter testing and safe work practices.
