Arc Flash Safety Training (NFPA 70E) course will provide an overview of the hazards associated with working on or near electrical conductors and equipment, with a special emphasis on arc flash hazards and the regulatory requirements for protecting employees from these hazards.

An arc flash is a phenomenon where a flashover of electric current leaves its intended path and travels through the air from one conductor to another, or to the ground. The results of an arc flash are often violent. An arc flash gives off thermal radiation (heat) and bright, intense light that can lead to serious injuries or even death.

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that electrical equipment is free from recognized hazards that are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. A qualified person must assess the workplace to identify electrical hazards to which employees may be exposed. This assessment would allow for the selection of appropriate hazard controls and safe work practices to ensure the health and safety of employees and prevent damage to structures and equipment.

This Arc Flash Safety Training (NFPA 70E) course is designed to familiarize workers with the arc flash hazards in their workplaces and the safe work practices set forth in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Electrical Safety Standards (29 CFR 1910 Subpart S and 29 CFR 1926 Subpart K) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.

This course is intended for workers who work on or near electrical conductors and circuit parts, including managers, supervisors, maintenance personnel, janitorial staff, equipment operators, and electricians.

Answer:

The NFPA 70E is an internationally accepted American National Standard that defines electrical safety-related work practices. The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) looks to the prescriptive-based requirements of NFPA 70E to fulfill the performance-based requirements included in its standards. NFPA 70E fleshes out how the performance-based requirements in the OSHA standards can be met by providing and defining minimum standard industry practices necessary for electrical safety. OSHA is the law, and NFPA 70E outlines ways to comply with OSHA’s electrical safety requirements. This symbiotic relationship between NFPA 70E and OSHA electrical safety standards helps to increase safety in the workplace.

Answer:

The NFPA 70E is an internationally applied standard. The electrical safety-related work practices, safety-related maintenance requirements, and other administrative controls in NFPA 70E apply to all alternating and direct current systems. The requirements in NFPA 70E apply to all types of employees, employers, and facilities, including in-house employees, contract employees, contractor employees, general industrial workplaces, and construction workplaces regardless of their location in the world.
