EEC (Eta Engineering Consultants) attended the 2012 IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop in Daytona Beach, FL. As always, the Electrical Safety Workshop provided great insight into the advancements of electrical safety in the workplace. EEC feels the Electrical Safety Workshop meet IAS’s mission of:
- Accelerating the application of breakthrough improvements in human factors, technology, and managing systems that reduce risk of electrical injuries
- Stimulating innovation in overcoming barriers
- Changing and advancing the electrical safety culture to enable sustainable improvements in prevention of electrical accidents and injuries
EEC was able to participate/attend a number of the technical programs, tours and standard working group sessions. By attending the IAS Electrical Safety Workshop yearly, EEC is able stay current with all the electrical safety standards and stay engaged with the vast electrical safety community in the United States and the World. The community allows EEC to have healthy dialog about safety issues and build a network of support which has proving extremely valuable to our clients. Between 400 and 500 fellow engineers attended the workshop and it was obvious they shared the same enthusiasm as EEC’s staff does in understanding and preventing electrical injuries.
EEC provides power system study services which include modeling, load flow, short circuit, transient motor starting calculations, protective device coordination, arc flash studies and mitigation. EEC has developed the knowledge and expertise, while investing in the tools, to cost-effectively analyze and provide recommendations/result for most power systems. EEC’s power system engineers have up to date license and experience with ETAP, SKM and EasyPower. Feel free to contact EEC if you have any questions or power system study needs.
