Electrical power systems on shipboard have increased in voltage level as well as complexity. These changes require a fresh look in the issue of electrical safety. Distribution systems on vessels are now weighing in at 6600 Volts instead of 450 Volts. This means that virtually all procedures must be reworked to accommodate the increased hazard levels presented by such voltages.

This bulletin is divided into five (5) sections as follows:

  1. Overview
  2. Risk assessment
  3. Safety Related Design Recommendations
  4. Safety Related Work Practices Recommendations
  5. Ship's Force Safety Related Training Recommendations
