Electrical Safety

All ETA-related electrical safety questions should be directed to the ETA Electrical Safety Officer (ESO), Ari Harding at (510) 495-2566 or aharding@lbl.gov

The LBNL electrical safety program has been developed with these key goals in mind:

  1. Prevent electrical-related injuries.
  2. Implement proactive controls across a spectrum of expected hazards
  3. Educate the lab population about electrical hazards
  4. Promote a vibrant electrical safety culture
  5. Demonstrate compliance to established standards

The Electrical Equipment Safety Program (EESP) is a key part of electrical safety at LBNL. All equipment must be approved by a Nationally Recognized Testing Lab (NRTL). ETA has several trained Electrical Equipment Surveyors who can check your equipment to ensure it has NRTL approval:
