NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety Qualified Worker Training
The NFPA 70E Electrical Safety Awareness Training for Electrical Workers (6 hour Course) discusses the electrical safety standard developed by the National Fire Protection Association in response to a request by OSHA for a standard that addresses safe work practices intended to protect electrical workers from electrical hazards. This course provides a solid foundation for compliance considerations by employers who realize the importance of NFPA 70E in their workplaces. Objectives include (6-hour session): Review of NFPA 70E standards and OSHA Regulations, path for customer compliance, and where to start. Why do we need electrical safety? What are the electrical hazards? What is an Arc Flash & causes of an Arc Flash? Read and interpret Arc Flash labels, use of tables in 70E, and PPE requirements. Complete an Energized Work Permit, review electrical testing equipment and NFPA 70B equipment testing requirements,
thermal Imaging, and inspection testing.
Van Ert Electric will be presenting the Qualified Electrical Worker Training.
