1-obj ective and scope objective advice regarding specific and generic as the purposes and applicability, summarizing and conditioning rules. 10.1.1 this regulatory n orm - nr establishes the minimum requirements and aiming to implement control me asures and preventive systems in order to ensure the safety and health of worker s who directly or indirectly interact in power plants and electricity services. 10.1.2 nr this applies to the phases of generation, transmission, distribution a nd consumption, including the steps of design, construction, installation, opera tion, maintenance of electrical installations and any work done in its vicinity, observing the technical standards established official by the competent organs and in the absence or omission of such, the applicable international standards. need for obedience to technical standards making it part of the legislation, soo n to be applied. does not deal with danger or provide additional payment for tha t specific legislation. the standard specifies only the prevention of accidents rather than their recovery or compensation. the concept of working in proximity (work during which the worker can enter the controlled area, though it is with p art of his body or extensions represented by conductive materials, tools or equi pment that handles) affect workers subject to the influence of surrounding facil ities or implementation of electrical services close to them. 10.2 - control measures represent the collective strategic actions of prevention to eliminate or reduce, keeping under control the uncertainty and adverse event s with the potential to cause injury or harm to health of workers and thus imple ment the possible difficulties in obtaining an expected result in satisfactory c onditions. 10.2.1 in all interventions in electrical installations should be tak en preventive measures to control the electrical hazard and other additional ris ks through risk analysis techniques in order to ensure the safety and health at work. the use of tools of risk analysis is now a mandatory procedure and there m ust be objective evidence of their preparation. (Objective evidence = meetings, involvement of people related to work and the final record of working in a sprea dsheet or equivalent form). it should be noted that the rule does not establish which analysis tool should be used but, used to identify the potential risks of accidents and physical materials, and identify and correct operational problems implementing a correct way to implement each step of work. should be a tool of c ritical examination of the activity or situation in order to identify and antici pate the undesirable events and accidents that may occur, enabling the adoption of preventive measures for workers, others and the environment. 10.2.2 Control m easures taken must be part of the other initiatives of the company, under the pr otection of safety, health and environment of work. the term implies grifado lev y. generates the understanding that the initiatives implemented for the preserva tion and security must be complemented with measures of risk control electric ad opt. This feature requires strong management to the process. 10.2.3 companies ar e required to maintain the single line diagram of the electrical facilities upgr aded their facilities to the specifications of the grounding system and other eq uipment and protective devices. documented specifications ensure that the protec tion elements are not replaced by other randomly, not compatible with the other elements of the facility. 10.2.4 establishments with installed load exceeding 75 kW shall establish and maintain records of electrical installation, containing, in addition to the provisions of subclause 10.2.3 as a minimum: the electrical documentation is generally an unknown quantity in the establishments, and their specifications, characteristics and limitations rarely known by the employee or user. now all information should be organized in the form of a record kept by th e employer or person formally designated by the company and remain available to all those involved with facilities and services with electricity. if you want to create a dynamic memory of the electrical facilities, work proced ures, systems of protective measures, performance training,€trainings, recruitme nt, certification, testing dielectric strength etc.. hence arises the opportunit y to responsible management and evaluation at any time, with updated documentati on, will facilitate studies and research workers and others concerned with promo

ting and supervising audits of security actions. a) set of procedures and techni cal instructions and administrative health and safety, deployed, and related to this nr and description of existing control measures, b) documentation of inspec tions and measurements of the protection system against lightning and electrical grounds, c) specification protection equipment and tooling collective and indiv idual, applying as it determines this nr d) supporting documentation of qualific ation, qualification, training, licensing workers and people training, e) result s of tests performed on electrical insulation protection equipment and collectiv e f) certification of electrical equipment and materials in hazardous and g) tec hnical report of inspections with updated recommendations, schedules to be adjus ted, considering the points "a" through "f". 10.2.5 companies operating in facil ities or equipment, members of the power system must provide records to the cont ent item 10.2.4 and add to chart the documents listed below: a) description of p rocedures for emergencies, b) certifications protective equipment and collective and individual; power system to the set of facilities and equipment for generat ion, transmission and distribution of electric energy through measuring inclusiv e. companies performing work in the vicinity of electric power system m ust be contemplating the chart items "a", "c", "d" and "e", item 10.2.4 and para graphs "a" and "b "Item 10.2.5. 10.2.6 records of the electrical installations s hould be organized and kept current by the employer or person formally designate d by the company and must remain available to workers involved in the facilities and services to electricity. 10.2.7 technical documents provided in the handboo k of electrical installations should be made by a legally qualified. 10.2.8 - 10 .2.8.1 collective protective measures for all services performed on premises electrical must be made and adopted primarily applicable collective protection m easures by performance, activities to be developed to ensure the safety and heal th of workers. de-energizing circuits involves keeping the channels of power dur ing the execution of services. collective protective measures include, primarily, the turn-off electric establishes this as nr and the impossibility, t he use of voltage security. Voltage Security is the one called extra-low voltage (less than 50 v AC) used primarily for outdoor, wet, subject to get flooded ... . used at points where other control measures are insufficient to guarantee secu rity or technical restrictions. voltage security is used to ensure the safety of users of facilities and electrical equipment installed in those environments. o ther protective measures refer to the alternatives to prevent contact with live parts of electrical installations and equipment installed in those environments. in the impossibility of implementation set out in subclause . Shall be used other measures of collective protection, such as insulation of l ive parts, obstacles, barriers, signage system, automatic feeding sectioning, bl ocking automatic restart. grounding of electrical installations should be implemented as regulations established by the competent bodies and, failing t hat, to meet current international standards. Grounding is a leading collective protection against accidental contact. the company will carry out periodic inspe ction of the grounding system seeking to confirm its effectiveness through the v erification of their physical integrity (continuity of the system) and quality ( resistance grounding) (report) 10.2.9 - personal protection in the work on electrical installations, w here the measures of collective protection are technically infeasible or insuffi cient to control risks should be adopted personal protective equipment appropria te to the specific activities developed in attendance provisions of the nr 6.€ep i ratio's required to perfect development of each task must appear in the prelim inary analysis of risks. all epi's used should contain ca (Certificate of Approval) issued by the ministr y of labor. of the dress should be appropriate for work activities and should include conductivity, flammability and electromagnetic influences. the mo st used indicator for the performance front dress the temperature of the electri c arc, expressed in calories per square centimeter is ATPV (arc thermal performa

nce value). the higher the greater the energy that the garment can withstand. 10 .2.9.3 It is forbidden the use of personal ornaments in the work with electrical installations or in its vicinity. metals are good conductors of electricity and promote the reduction of contact resistance and may result in more critical inj uries, worsening burns in case of passage of electric current, or even the occur rence of arc. in the case of protection for the whole body with respect to cloth ing with special fabrics, which must meet an appropriate resistance cal/cm2 40. 10.3-security projects 10.3.1 It is compulsory for projects of electrical instal lations specify shutdown circuit devices that have resources for prevention of r e-energizing for warning signs indicating the operational condition. 10.3.2 elec trical project, to the extent possible, provide for the installation of device s ectioning of simultaneous action, allowing the implementation of prevention of r e-energizing the circuit. Specification of protective devices is not restricted to technical aspects. should be mentioned that the devices allow the use of lock s, blocking locks or other resources to block their activation during the interv ention services. 10.3.3 the design of electrical installations should consider t he safe space, as the design and location of its components and external influen ces, while the operation and the completion of construction and maintenance. sho uld be noted the difficulty of access and the need for proper postures to perfor m the services, the type of environment for the presence of toxic people or anim als nearby; broadly intended to ensure there is enough room for doors to be open ed or removed safely, tight screws, devices replaced without requiring the worke r to stay crouched or sandwiched subject to the risk of accidents. when it comes to outside influences means that each element of the system should be specified according to the place where they will be installed. This applied to the degree s of protection ip equipment. electrical circuits with different purpos es, such as communication, signaling, control and electric traction should be id entified and installed separately, except where the technological development to enable sharing, subject to the definitions of projects. 10.3.4 the project must define the configuration of the grounding scheme, mandatory or not the intercon nection between the neutral conductor and protective ground connection and the c onductive parts designed to conduct electricity. 10.3.5 whenever feasible and ap propriate, devices must be designed to incorporate features sectioning fixed equ ipotencialização and grounding circuit sectioned. 10.3.6 whole project should pr ovide conditions for the adoption of temporary grounding. grounding should be se en as part of the electric bill, which shall be specified the method to be used. there should be not only functional ground, but conditions for installation of the temporary grounding of providing the interconnection phase conductors to the ground, putting all points in the same potential (equali zed). 10.3.7 the design of electrical installations should be available to emplo yees authorized by the competent authorities and other persons authorized by the company and should be kept updated. keep projects to date is a difficult task a nd require the company's tight control on the interventions made in the electric al system and the existence of licensed professionals, service orders and proced ures. 10.3.8 The electrical design must meet the regulatory standards that have health and safety, technical regulations established officers, and be signed by a legally qualified. 10.3.9 the specification of the project must contain at least the following safe ty items: a) specification of the characteristics relating to protection against electric shock, burns and other additional risks;€b) position statement of the switching devices of electrical circuits: (green - "d", off and red - "l", on), c) description of the identification system of electrical circuits and equipment , including devices for handling of control, protection, interlock, and the driv ers' own equipment and structures, defining how such information must be physica lly implemented in the components of the facilities, d) recommendations for rest rictions and warnings regarding the admission of persons to the components of th e facilities; e) Precautions applicable in the face of external influences, f) t
