The SSG Electrical Engineering Committee was founded in 1971 and works with standardisation in respect of electrical responsibility, electrical safety and electrical technology, and establishes new and revised standards in related fields. The committee monitors development in respect of electrics, as well as monitoring the need for new services and developing existing services based on SSG Standards.
The work of the committee aims to ensure that SSG standards and services in respect of electrics are established as de facto standards in the Swedish process industry, as well as being the actual choice of consultants, designers and suppliers in their attempts to run cost-effective, quality-assured construction, renovation and extension projects, as well as regular maintenance. Training courses, services and standards are provided to help companies and organisations to do the right thing when it comes to electrical responsibility and electrical safety for a safer work environment.
The committee is involved in extensive knowledge and experience exchange, along with network building. There are five geographical power networks in Sweden, and each year the SSG elansvarsträff (electrical responsibility meeting) conference gathers together almost 100 active stakeholders working with electrical responsibility in Sweden. There are currently a number of workgroups working on standards such as SSG 4510 – Guidelines on the Management of Electric Arc Risks, production of an entirely new version 5 of SSG 4501 – Systematic Electrical Safety Work and revision of SSG 4909 – EMC Instructions.
The committee issues regular technical bulletins containing safety-critical information to contacts in the field.
