Electrical Health Safety Study

Electrical equipment must be safe at all times, and this lies within the responsibility of the employer. However, hidden or apparent equipment defects pose a risk to employees and may lead to accidents repeatedly.

Periodic Inspections are supposed to ensure that electrical equipment is in good order and condition. You can take simple precautions when working with or near electricity and electrical equipment to significantly reduce the risk of injury to you, your workers, and others around you.
Our Comprehensive Electrical Safety Audit Follows
:
  • Applicable standards (national and international), such as, but not limited to – IS 14489.
  • Code of Practice of Occupational Health & Safety Audits.
  • CEA Regulations (2010 and its amendments).
  • National Building Code, 2016; National Lighting Code, 2010


Carrying out an earthing study is a mandatory requirement for every new installation project.

The purpose of earthing in the electrical network is primarily to ensure safety. When all metallic parts of electrical equipment are grounded, there will be no effect due to dangerous voltages present within the equipment case, as earthing enables the discharge of the excess charges towards the ground.

Although if there is a failure of insulation material inside the equipment, earthing prevents the building up of electrical charges on the equipment by discharging to the ground.

Hence, an Earthing Study can be laborious and requires various soil resistivity surveys and calculations based on the latest standard IS 3043, IEEE 80, etc.

VNT provides a holistic and reliable Earthing Study, ensuring that the responsibility of the businesses and safety concerns for invaluable assets are met.

ELP Study

With lightning being the most common weather hazard, protecting the buildings/structures and equipment from a lightning strike is essential. VNT’s Lightning Protection Study helps in designing and installation of protection devices in compliance with the most advanced standards: IS/IEC 62305; NBC 2016; OISD 180, amongst others.
We undertake complete work – from Risk Analysis (as per IS/IEC 62305-2 against lightning surge for any industrial site/commercial infrastructure) to Designing and Installation (as per IS/IEC 62305-3&4). VNT provides advanced distinctive solutions & services in the field of lightning and surge protection.

The complete work involves:
1. Site Survey
2. Soil Resistivity Test
3. A study of:
-Existing earthing & lightning protection systems.
-Electrical layout plan.
-Designing the required Lightning Protection System as per guidelines of IEC / BIS standards.

VNT’s Energy Audit helps businesses investigate their organisation’s historical and current energy usage to identify and quantify areas of energy wastage and deal with the results in a time-bound manner.

Increasingly in the last several decades, industrial energy audits have exploded as the demand to lower increasingly expensive energy costs and move towards a sustainable future has been realized. 

Energy spending is a significant expense to industrial companies (energy spending accounts for ~ 10% of the average manufacturer's costs) as it accounts for the direct costs.

VNT’s Effective Energy Audit establishes the baseline for any improvements in an organization's energy usage. In other words, it provides a comprehensive and systematic method for targeting cost-effective efficiency gains.

Corrosion Study

Corrosion is a galvanic process by which metals deteriorate through oxidation. It is a natural process of gradually eating up materials due to interaction with a corrosive environment. This destruction caused by metallic corrosion is a significant challenge in the world economy today. Metallic Corrosion, in most cases, is an electrochemical process occurring between a metal and its environment involving oxidation and reduction reactions.

In extreme cases, heavy corrosion can cause failure in the pipelines resulting in leakage, which may cause enormous material and environmental damage. Therefore, we must continuously monitor the condition of the pipeline during operation. In case there is any corrosion, it must be immediately identified throughout the complete pipeline. With appropriate corrosion study—the degradation of materials, including metals, concrete, polymers, and other materials, can be avoided/resolved.

Power Quality Analysis involves:
1. Visual inspection of the facility.
2. Data monitoring of power parameters using a Power Analyzer at various locations to collect the data & interpret the same.

Power Quality is a set of electrical boundaries that allow a piece of equipment to function in its intended manner without significant loss of performance or life expectancy. It refers to the extent of deviation and distortion in pure supply waveform and the continuity in supply.
The standards followed for Power Quality are IEEE Std.1159 and IEC 61000 – 4 – 30.

Thermography is a technique used in detecting and measuring variations in the heat emitted by various body areas and transforming them into visible signals that can be recorded photographically.

1. It is a non-destructive testing method that enables the detection of:
-Poor connections
-Unbalanced loads
-Deteriorated insulation
2. Thermography helps to diagnose electrical problems, such as loose or corroded connections that cause increased resistance in the circuit.
With VNT’s Thermography Tests, you can get insights into the functioning of the components, ensure safety, risk reduction, and reduce delay costs – all in an effective manner.
