COURSE OVERVIEW

The NFPA 70E® STANDARD FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE – 2018 EDITION course is to keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. NFPA 70E requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards. Originally developed at OSHA’s request, NFPA 70E helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast, and assists in complying with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.

Overall, this program is designed to reduce liability for the employer while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees; it is a key component of any electrical training program.

This safety course is produced and instructed by NFPA®, the unequivocal industry leader in code development and knowledge. NFPA is the authority on the codes and standards organizations use every day to get the job done right.
