In this NFPA training seminar we combine installation with safe work practices - 2017 NEC® & 2018 NFPA 70E®

Workshop Description/Agenda

In this NFPA training seminar we combine installation with safe work practices  – 2017 NEC® & 2018 NFPA 70E®.

Electrical safety training provides you with the education needed to complete your job safely. According to the US Department of Labor, electrocution is one of the main causes of on-the job deaths of industrial workers. Within this group, skilled trades’ personnel — electricians in particular — are two times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than non-skilled trade personnel.

This NFPA 70E and NEC® seminar meets the training requirements of OSHA rule 1910:331-335.

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 1910.303 through 1910.308.
