Among the maintenance work of the electric motors, we have the maintenance of windings. In this maintenance we have some dangers, being:
– the handling of solvents, varnishes and dangerous resins;
– Handling of flammable products;
– The test in high voltage (AT).
The handling and use of these substances should always be performed by an authorized team.
There are dangerous substances used in the maintenance of windings and these products have special instructions for their handling during the maintenance work and they must be followed.

The maintenance team must follow some safety measures during winding maintenance:
– Avoid breathing airborne gases;
– Wear safety equipment such as goggles, shoes, helmet, gloves and protective clothing to protect the skin;
– Equipment with varnish, machine housing and windings must be earthed during the application of varnish;
– Take the necessary steps while working in pits and confined places;
– Only people trained to work with high voltage can perform a voltage test;
– Do not smoke, eat or drink at work.
