Training for work on vehicles with high voltage systems
The growing use of voltages above 30 V AC and 60 V DC in automotive technology owing to fuel cells, hybrid technology and electric vehicles gives rise to an electrical hazard in the form of electric shock and arcing during work on vehicles. This in turn results in a responsibility for the employer to train his employees further such that they are able to assess pending electrical work, identify possible hazards, and define suitable protective measures.
The present informative publication contains instructions for the employer/superior on how, based upon the risk assessment, the electrical hazards can be identified and the need for training determined for work:
• in development and manufacture
• on series production vehicles.
