No one should get injured or lose their life trying to make a living. This is a foundational belief that has been at the core of our business since day one of Electrical Diagnostic Surveys (EDS), and continues to direct our operations today. EDS specializes in many different aspects of electrical training and engineering. We have the ground level field experience to ensure optimal compliance with OSHA.
EDS instructors have field experience in the electrical trade in the commercial, industrial, and utilities, and are extremely knowledgable in the National Electrical Code (NEC) 2014, OSHA 1910 Subpart S, OSHA 1926 Subpart K, and the NFPA 70E. Best of all, EDS trainers are passionate about electrical safety.
Our electrical safety training classes are among the most thorough, comprehensive, and results-oriented training modules in the business. Our goal is to cross the “t” in training, and dot the “i” in incident prevention methods. We can help your company meet and exceed the OSHA mandate for employers to provide a safe work environment for your employees.
EDS rests in the sweet spot between being large enough to handle any client’s training or electrical engineering needs, yet small enough to give them the personal attention they deserve. True to our roots, we are passionate about providing our clients with a safe, efficient operation, in which, both the employee and the employer thrive.
This all changed for Bob when he attended a funeral of a childhood friend who was electrocuted while working on a 120V lighting circuit. He was a qualified industrial electrician who neglected to shut off the power feeding the circuit, verify zero energy and insulate himself by wearing his voltage-rated gloves. This incident influenced Bob to make a cultural change. He had lost a dear friend, and he realized his own lack of self-discipline and awareness wasn’t up to where it should be regarding electrical safe work practices.
What Bob came to realize from this tragedy is that safety is just another word until it becomes personal. After the sale of Bob’s electrical contracting business in 2005, he desired to make a difference in the lives of electrical workers. This would be accomplished by raising awareness and training workers about safe work practices as outlined within the NFPA 70E and NEC documents. (These national consensus standards provide for electrical safety in the workplace and installation requirements.) If these standards were implemented, workers would be safe from the shock, thermal hazards and other hazards involved when working on or near electrical equipment. Installations would also be considered safe to operate.
