Why is NFPA 70E Training Important?

The primary reason to provide NFPA 70E electrical safety training is to ensure workers are safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. It is also a key step employers of electrical workers must take to comply with OSHA and NFPA 70E standards.

Safe work practices, hazard identification, and PPE selection that affect the employee will be covered during training, in addition to documentation and compliance concerns that affect the employer. Training can be tailored to meet the specific needs, tasks, and equipment within your organization.

Training Objectives

  1. Requirements of OSHA and NFPA 70E standards
  2. Changes in these standards in recent years
  3. How to identify electrical hazards
  4. Definition of a “qualified worker”
  5. Safe approach boundaries to electrical conductors
  6. Shock hazards and their effects
  7. Definition of “arc flash” and “arc blast” and their associated damaging effects
  8. How to interpret arc flash labels
  9. How to establish electrically safe work conditions
  10. Personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements
  11. How to select and use the right PPE
  12. Proper safe work practices
  13. Lockout/tagout procedures for electrical equipment

In addition to providing safe work practice direction, this course is designed to help companies fulfill their training requirements for compliance with OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S Electrical, and NFPA 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.” You will learn about personal safety for working on or around electrical systems and equipment, how to use proper tools, materials and protective gear, and what procedures to use when doing electrical work.
