Course Description:

NFPA 70E/ Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Introduction to Arc Flash Analysis 8

This essential one-day workshop on NFPA 70E and Arc Flash Electrical Safety is the basis for our more advanced electrical safety courses. This workshop meets the safety training requirements for employees bound by OSHA rule 29 CFR 1910:331-335. Learn how current NFPA 70E standards apply to a facility, why safe electrical work practices are important; and how to ensure your organization meets all government standards for electrical safety. OSHA’s mandated training requirements apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.303-308.

This workshop can be followed by our full course which is offered in a two-day segment with broader course topics to include: NFPA 70E / Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Utilization of High Voltage and NFPA 70E / Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Arc Flash Analysis. We suggest the two-day program for a more comprehensive training.

Electrical safety training empowers workers to perform their jobs safely. According to the US Department of Labor, electrocution is one of the main causes of on-the-job deaths of industrial workers. Proper training keeps facilities, equipment, and personnel safe from accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
