Electrical Safety Engineer
US Citizenship Required
PPPL, Princeton, NJ / $80.00 Hourly
Contract: 6 Months Temp to Hire / Deadline 10/07/2022
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is a collaborative national center for fusion energy research. The Laboratory advances the coupled fields of fusion energy and plasma physics research, and, with collaborators, is developing the scientific understanding and key innovations needed to realize fusion as an energy source for the world.

PPPL has a very exciting and rare opportunity to join a department during a significant growth period. As
Electrical Safety Officer, this position is responsible as the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab’s Authority Having
Jurisdiction (AHJ) for NFPA 70 and 70E, and for leading the development and implementation of the PPPL
electrical safety program, consistent with Laboratory Environment, Safety, and Health policies, DOE
requirements, and consensus standards. The objective of the electrical safety program is to ensure safe operations,
maintenance, and repair of PPPL's vast electrical system and manage associated risks through control of electrical

• Review and approve the facility-wide electrical design, construction, operation, and decommissioning activities
to ensure compliance with applicable regulatory and code requirements, particularly regarding medium and high
voltage installations (600 volts and above). Participate in design reviews for the above activities.
• Inspect medium and high voltage electrical installations and construction job sites to monitor adherence to safety
practices and procedures.
• Develop, maintain and conduct training on Electrical Safety topics including Basic Electrical Safety,
Lockout/Tagout, Capacitor Banks, Battery Banks, and Electric Utilization.
• Maintain currency in applicable federal, state, and local safety regulations and codes, and
modify PPPL policies and practices to ensure adherence to the latest requirements.
• Provide professional electrical safety engineering support including developing, updating, and interpreting PPPL
policies and practices, codes, and industry standards as needed to advance the electrical safety program.
• Disseminate electrical safety information and instructions to promote the objectives of the
electrical safety program through effective oral and written communication, such as newsletter articles and small
group meetings.
• Conduct assessments of Electrical Safety Programs, including field inspections, procedures, and policy reviews
to identify weaknesses and corrective actions.
• Provide support as needed to all other aspects of industrial safety including OSHA compliance evaluations,accident and incident investigations, program development, and training.
• Conduct receipt inspections of electrical equipment to ensure safety and compliance with contract requirements.

1. Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering; Licensed Professional Engineer preferred
(additional relevant experience may substitute); Master’s Degree desirable.
2. Required Previous Work Experience: This position requires 10-12 years of progressive

3. Must have expert working knowledge in NFPA 70, NFPA 70E, NESC, Arc Flash Hazards, Arc
Flash Analysis, Personal Protective Equipment, and OSHA regulations.
4. Experience in a Research & Development setting is highly desired.
5. This position requires expert-level knowledge of electrical standards, codes, and regulatory
requirements. The individual should be familiar with the equipment, tools, and work practices of the
industrial trades as well as with research and development practices for high and low
voltage, AC and DC electrical systems.
6. The candidate should have a general knowledge of disciplines other than electrical engineering criteria,
and contract documents. An ability to apply electrical safety knowledge through the development and
implantation of programs and assessments and to conduct incident investigations is needed.
7. The position requires an ability to effectively communicate, both verbally and in writing, any
safety criteria, concerns, and recommendations to personnel at all levels of the Laboratory
while working effectively as a team member. Ability to apply computer-based tools to
