Workshop Description/Agenda

2 day Lecture
1.6 Continuing Education Credits

This course is a subcomponent of:
2012 NFPA 70E/ Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Introduction to Arc Flash Analysis

Our essential two-day NFPA 70E/Arc Flash Electrical Safety course is the basis for more advanced electrical safety courses. This course meets the safety training requirements for employees bound by OSHA rule 29 CFR 1910:331-335. Learn how current NFPA 70E standards apply to a facility, why safe electrical work practices are important, and how to ensure your organization meets all government standards for electrical safety. OSHA’s mandated training requirements apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.303-308.

This course is a two-day segment within these broader courses: NFPA 70E / Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Utilization of High Voltage and NFPA 70E / Arc Flash Electrical Safety with Arc Flash Analysis. We suggest one of these broader courses for the most comprehensive training.

Electrical safety training empowers workers to perform their jobs safely. According to the US Department of Labor, electrocution is one of the main causes of on-the-job deaths of industrial workers. Proper training keeps facilities, equipment and personnel safe from accidents, injuries and fatalities.
