GENERATING SOLUTIONS FOR AN ELECTRICITY PROVIDER
After a Disaster, National Field Services Responds
After a disastrous electrical equipment failure, everyone's first concern is the safety of personnel. A recent incident occurred at an electricity provider's unmanned substation, so thankfully no one was hurt. But with demand for power high in a hot Texas summer, the company had to get back on line as quickly as possible to continue to meet its commitments. So they called National Field Services.
BECKMAN ON BOARD!
Q&A with the New Secretary of the NETA Board
Congratulations to our Vice President of Operations Eric Beckman who earlier this year was elected to the board of directors of NETA and who has subsequently been elevated to the position of Secretary.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY AND THE LAW
How Does the Government Judge the Safety of Your Workplace?
As a leader in electrical testing and implementing electrical safety programs, we at National Field Services are often asked by clients about the legal requirements of electrical safety programs. How does the federal government judge compliance? We're electrical engineers, not lawyers, so we can't provide a legally definitive answer. But we can clearly demonstrate how OSHA leans heavily on NFPA 70E (NFPA's Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace) to determine if an employer is in compliance with the electrical safety requirements of the Department of Labor.
