EFCOG_Logo_RGBYou might ask, “What IS EFCOG?”

EFCOG is the Energy Facility Contractors Group of the DOE (Department of Energy). I have participated in the electrical safety workshop which began in 2007.

From the EFCOG website:

Energy Facility Contractors Group’s Knowledge Portal

EFCOG promotes excellence in all aspects of the operation, management, and integration of DOE facilities in a safe, environmentally sound, efficient and cost-effective manner through the ongoing exchange of information on lessons learned.
The purpose of this Knowledge Portal is to provide a vehicle to allow members to keep abreast of the latest news, issues, and events across the DOE complex; for the sharing of innovative ideas and practices; and to collaborate virtually on the development and implementation of new processes and practices.

This is mostly a DOE (Department of Energy) group, but several others joined in. The resources are valuable to build a solid NFPA 70E-based electrical safety program.

The main page for EFCOG with applications to those who want to join is here.

The Archives of EFCOG info is here.
