BEV Service & Installation: Safety and Standards

This safety and standards course is designed to provide a foundational understanding of safety and standards for servicing BEVs. 

With the increasing popularity of BEVs, the need for qualified technicians who can safely service these vehicles is on the rise. The course will focus on safety standards, regulations, and other BEV industry standards. This course identifies the potential dangers when performing service on high-voltage systems. The topics covered in this course will enable you to classify proper personal protective equipment and identify defects. This is followed by a review of work bay safety procedures and how to identify tools and equipment required for high-voltage service. You will learn the industry’s standards for differentiating low-voltage, intermediate-voltage, and high-voltage electrical circuits and the importance of powering down a BEV before servicing. 

BEVs are quite different from gasoline-powered vehicles, requiring specialized knowledge and skills to service safely. This module begins with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) that technicians must use to protect themselves from electrical shock and other hazards, as BEVs operate at high voltages, which can be dangerous if not handled properly. Finally, we will cover the guidance needed for work bay safety procedures and the tools and equipment required for high-voltage (HV) service.


  1. PPE for BEV Technicians 
  2. Safety Tools & Equipment for HV Work bay Safety 
  3. HV Work bay Safety for BEVs 

In this module, you will explore the critical safety standards and procedures for working with high-voltage systems in BEVs. You will identify key industry standards and regulations, differentiate voltage levels, and define essential concepts such as floating ground, interlock circuits, and isolation fault detection systems. Additionally, you will learn to safely de-energize and re-energize HV systems, following prerequisite steps and best practices. Finally, you will discover the importance of isolation fault testing, identify components prone to isolation faults, and apply the necessary PPE, tools, and procedures to conduct these tests effectively. By completing this module, you will develop the skills and knowledge to maintain and service BEV HV systems while prioritizing safety and adhering to industry standards.
