Designing Safe & Reliable Electrical Asset Management Programs

Presenter: Martin Robinson
Electrical asset inspections yield the most beneficial information when operating under full load conditions; however, the risk of an accident is at the highest level if the inspection is performed on open panels. The company’s maintenance management team is challenged to find an answer to this question as a result of two key drivers: 1. Enforcement of New Safety Regulations 2. Management’s objective of zero downtime This presentation will focus on the following topics to help organizations find safe and cost-effective solutions: • Review traditional calendar-based electrical maintenance practices and recognize the risk of associated safety and reliability errors • Understand how safety regulations are driving changes in workplace electrical operating procedures • Understand the rationale behind condition-based maintenance inspection programs and its respective safety, efficiency, asset reliability and cost-avoidance benefits • Review of innovative technologies and tools available today to create a safe, efficient and reliable electrical maintenance inspection and data surveillance program that saves lives, time and profits • Discuss the average skill level of today’s electrical workforce and understand how a condition-based maintenance program would utilize all skill levels more efficiently While no program is 100% error proof, condition-based maintenance inspections is growing as companies strive to improve profitability, uptime, and safety.
