We offer a one-day NFPA 70E (Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace) training course to educate your employees on the hazards of electricity.

What is NFPA 70E? NFPA 70E is a standard of the National Fire Protection Association. First developed in 1979 at OSHA’s request and periodically reviewed for updates, NFPA 70E helps to minimize exposure to shock, arc flash, arc blast, and electrocution and protects employees from the dangers related to the use of electricity in the workplace. The requirements in NFPA 70E apply to all types of employees, employers, and facilities, including contract employees, contractors, general industrial workplaces, and construction workplaces. NFPE 70E helps you to comply with OSHA electrical standards (1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K).

Who should take this course? Maintenance workers, supervisors, project managers, industrial electricians, commercial electricians, residential electricians, janitorial staff, HVAC installers, safety managers, electrical engineers, construction employees, welders, riggers, mechanics, industrial machine operators, and anyone working with or around electricity, electrical systems, or equipment.

Our comprehensive NFPA 70E training is designed to help you:

  • Select appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) based on NFPA 70E tables
  • Ensure your required PPE is inspected, tested, and maintained in accordance with regulations
  • Explain the biological effects of arc flashes
  • Describe Lockout/Tagout procedures
  • Establish electrically safe work practices

What You Will Learn:

  • NFPA 70E introduction and concepts
  • The various types of electrical hazards
  • What "Arc Flash Analysis" is and why it's important
