Electrotechnically Trained Personnel (ETP)

Not all work in the electrotechnical engineering area must be performed by a qualified electrician. If a Chief Electrics Specialist in Charge recognizes dangers when working in electrical engineering fields, then this work must be performed by at least Electrotechnically Trained Person (ETP) under the supervision of a qualified electrician. ETP applies to any person who has been instructed by a qualified electrician about any dangers and how to carry out the work.

Tasks can be for example:

  • Switch tires on an electrified vehicle or support of a Electrics Specialist while working on an electrical installation. Here, the Electrics Specialist will assume responsibility that the work is safely performed.
Electrics Specialist for HV systems (SH)

The Electrics Specialist for HV systems (SH) may run repetitive tasks on the HV system through clearly defined work instructions. Any work on the HV system must be discontinued if an activity does not have specified work instructions.

The duties of a specialist in HV systems include, for example:

  • Activities within the technical scope of the ECE R100-based systems and components (HV systems on motor vehicle)
  • Work for defined activities (identical, repetitive tasks according to work instruction)
  • Voltage-free work, reliable fulfillment and implementation of the transmitted electrical activities of HV systems in vehicles – without posing any danger to themselves and/or third parties
  • Contact for workshop staff and the repair of electrical equipment within the specified activities
  • testing of HV systems in motor vehicles and equipment for their proper condition with provided tools (checklists, instructions, etc.) under the supervision and guidance of a CESC / ES

The competence of SH is the certified commissioning and decommissioning of electrified vehicles. In carrying out his work, the Specialist for HV-drive Systems in Automobiles (SH) has the responsibility to ensure that high-voltage safety standards are met. Following the successful completion of training with examination in theory and practice, the formal appointment to an ES must be made by the employer.

Electrics Specialist (ES) Automotive Technology

Electrics Specialist (ES) can assess the assigned tasks and recognize and avoid risks that may arise from the electricity by their technical training, knowledge, and experience and knowledge of the relevant provisions in that field. The ES is only active in the area in which this experience has accumulated. ES’ are always necessary when electrical systems are built, changed or maintained. The status ES can also be attained when coming from a different profession. This qualification can be achieved through further education and practical experience.

Tasks of an Electrics Specialist Automotive Technology can be, for example:

  • Activities within the technical scope of the ECE R100-based systems and components (HV) systems
  • Implementing and maintaining requirements based on high-voltage Systems
  • Disposing of recognizable infringements against safety regulations, regardless of their own range of responsibilities
  • Training people in high-voltage operating environment
  • Identifying, reviewing and adjusting training requirements, preparation of training plans (qualification matrix)
  • creating work instructions for SH or technical assistance to the relevant region
  • Implementing and evaluating the necessary safety measures for the respective work
  • Supporting the annual safety training and in the implementation of training activities concerning safety-conscious behavior when working on vehicle-HV-drive components and systems
  • Supporting risk assessments
  • Monitoring proper building, modification and maintenance of operating and test equipment for HV-drive systems in motor vehicles

The powers of the ES can be, for example:

  • Discretionary power regarding area of ​​responsibility (compliance with high-voltage standards) to individuals with activities in high-voltage environment (for example, Electrical Specialists for defined activities (ESD)
  • instructing expertise, supporting competency (selection of ESD etc.),
  • Advisory competence in all systems that internally generate HV

The responsibility of the ES is described in the following rules: Definition of the technical responsibility scope: Basic ECE R100, organizational responsibility (DGUV Rule 3, § 4), control (DGUV Rule 3, § 5), planning, supervisory, managerial and professional responsibility (VDE 1000-10), ensuring the implementation of provisions of the DGUV information 200-005.

Live Work (LW)

High voltage / Live work expert (LW-certified) is someone who, due to professional training, knowledge and experience as well as knowledge of the relevant provisions of the assigned tasks, can identify, assess and avoid dangers from the intrinsically safe and not  intrinsically safe electrified vehicles. The status of high-voltage / Live work expert can also be attained when coming from a different profession. With training and practical experience, the qualification can be achieved.

Tasks beyond the “ES Automotive Technology” activities can be, for example:

  • Implementing and evaluating the necessary safety measures for the respective work
  • Supporting annual safety training and implementing training activities concerning safety-conscious behavior when working on vehicle-HV-drive components and systems
  • Supporting risk assessments, defining safety measures
  • Monitoring proper building, modification and maintenance of operating and test equipment for HV-drive systems in motor vehicles

The powers of the HV expert can be, for example:

  • Discretionary power in regarding area of ​​responsibility (compliance with high-voltage standards) to individuals with activities in high-voltage environment (for example, SH)
  • instructing expertise, support competency (selection of HV technician, etc.),
  • advisory competence in all systems that internally generate HV

Arranging necessary safety measures for the respective work, defining inspection intervals (for example, PPE, measuring equipment, etc.).

The responsibility of the high-voltage expert is explained and defined by the following rules: Definition of the technical responsibility scope: Basic ECE R100, organizational responsibility (DGUV Rule 3, § 4), control (DGUV Rule 3, § 5), planning, supervisory, managerial and professional responsibility (VDE 1000-10), ensuring the implementation of provisions of the DGUV information 200-005.
