Course description

Arc Flash Electrical Safety NFPA 70E® On-site Training

Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, the foremost goal of this two-day Arc Flash Electrical Safety NFPA 70E® course is to keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. The course is structured to help companies fulfill requirements set forth in OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S Electrical and NFPA 70E® “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace,” which requires this type of instructor-led training for anyone working with electrically energized equipment. As of September 2020, this seminar includes the changes in the 2021 version of 70E®.

Overall, this program is designed to reduce liability for the employer while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees; it is a key component of any electrical training program.
