NFPA 70E® - 2018 Electrical Safety Training

NFPA 70E® - 2018 Electrical Safety Training

The NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace has been updated for 2018. This updated standard contains significant changes when compared to the 2015 version. The course covers the requirements for working safely in the electrical environment based on the NFPA 70E. Understanding this standard is imperative for compliance with the OSHA mandates regarding electrical safety in the workplace. OSHA specifically mandates employer assessment of generally recognized hazards in the workplace, and provisions for protecting the employee from those hazards. Some of the changes in the NFPA 70E 2018 edition include: the arc flash risk assessment procedures, a revised task-based table to clarify selection methods for arc flash personal protective equipment (PPE), and the electrical safety program requirements for inspection, job safety planning, and incident investigations on electrical equipment.

The NFPA 70E is updated to reflect ongoing research to improve electrical safe work practices and PPE. OSHA compliance and a safe workplace are the desired outcomes. NFPA 70E provides the directions on how to achieve that outcome. Fewer electrical accidents are in everyone’s best interest.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This two-day course is intended for any personnel who work on or around AC or DC voltages of 50 volts or more, or that are responsible for safety in the workplace. Personnel in any industry where the hazards of electricity are a reality will benefit from this knowledge. This course assists in meeting the mandated training requirements of OSHA 1910.332. Participants will receive the 2018 edition of the NFPA 70E.
