Seismic Restraint for Electrical Equipment

The Seismic Restraint for Electrical Equipment 6 hour PDH online course is a part of the Structural category courses. This course provides guidance on attaching electrical equipment to a building to minimize earthquake damage. Many attachment examples are presented, to include anchoring and the use of special devices called seismic restraint devices.

Seismic restraint devices include vibration isolation systems, cable or strut suspension systems, roof attachment systems, and steel shapes.

This course is based on FEMA document No. 413 “Installing Seismic Restraint for Electrical Equipment”.

This course is intended for use by civil and structural engineers, electrical engineers, design and construction professionals, students and others interested in learning about seismic restraint to electrical equipment.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe various types of electrical equipment and how they should be restrained in seismic areas
  • Explain various types of attachments and their application (floor-mounted, roof-mounted, suspended, vibration isolated, wall-mounted)
  • Discuss various anchor type and their correct application (cast-in-place anchors, lag bolts, welding, steel bolts, masonry anchors)
  • Explain seismic restraint for special cases such as cables, control panels, housekeeping pads and lighting
