following basic safety procedures. Disregard for safety precautions on the part of non-
Reclamation personnel could eventually seriously affect Reclamation personnel and
equipment located at the same facility. Further, complacence or failure on
Reclamation's part to initiate appropriate action to correct the situation would have an
adverse impact on industry's opinion of Reclamation's competence in power
operation. While the non-Reclamation agency has the responsibility for the safety of
its personnel, Reclamation has a duty to control access to its facilities to assure that
work is accomplished or supervised by persons who have demonstrated the
knowledge and competency to work safely at energized facilities.
To achieve this goal, each region has been instructed to initiate a cooperative training
program to limit access of non-Reclamation O&M personnel to Reclamation stations
to those personnel who have been examined and trained as follows, or who are
accompanied by and under the constant supervision of an employee who has been
trained and examined as follows:
1. Instructed in the safety and operating requirements set forth in the
Reclamation O&M Safety Standards and in FIST Vol. 1.1.
2. Familiarized with the physical layout of Reclamation's portion of the facility
and Reclamation's SOP for the facility.
3. Familiarized with the interconnection of Reclamation and non-Reclamation
equipment in the stations, with emphasis on unusual switching procedures or
inherent "booby traps" in equipment.
4. Examined and found to be knowledgeable in the above procedures and
competent in his field.
In lieu of the above, the non-Reclamation agency may have a system to certify
personnel using other materials approved by Reclamation as meeting our requirement.
Such training and examination is also required of all Reclamation O&M personnel
concerned with work on or near energized equipment and for non-Reclamation
employees who operate Reclamation equipment.
