Learn to identify the hazards of an electrical job, assess what can be done to eliminate hazards, understand methods of mitigating hazards, how to use best industry practices to comply with OSHA and NFPA 70E® requirements, and achieve a safe-and-practical approach to performing electrical work.
29 CFR 1910.333(a) states that employers must employ safety-related work practices to prevent electrical shock or other injuries resulting from either direct or indirect electrical contact. NFPA 70E is the tool employers use to meet this OSHA requirement. NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, provides the prescriptive methods for OSHA compliance for safe electrical work.
Originally developed at OSHA’s request, NFPA 70E helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, arc blast, and assists in complying with OSHA (29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)) 1910 Subpart S and 29 CFR 1926 Subpart K.
This 2-day, hands-on course takes Electrical Safety Training from a lecture-based format to a hands-on and scenario based approach of “learn by doing.”
- As you work through the hands-on labs you’ll learn the practical aspects changed in this new edition like:
- Risk assessment procedure; the hierarchy of risk controls and human errors
- Establishing an electrically-safe work condition that includes Lockout/Tag out principles and procedures
- Estimate of the likelihood of occurrence of an arc flash incident for AC and DC systems
- Selection of arc-rated clothing and other personal protective equipment (PPE) using the incident energy analysis method
At the end of this seminar, students will be able to:
- Understand the new Risk Assessment approach to Electrical Safety
- Apply OSHA CFR 1910.331-335 and CFR 1926 Subpart K training requirements with NFPA 70E® standards
- Understand arc flash and arch blast hazards and boundaries
- Appropriately calculate and comprehend the Incident Energy Analysis Method
- Understand the importance of an electrically safe work environment and how it reduces injury
- Use of test instruments in compliance with NFPA 70E
