MEA Electrical Safety Training – NFPA 70E
Identify and mitigate electrical safety hazards in the workplace
Hundreds of people every year experience severe electrical injuries on the job. These injuries occur from contact with live power, burns from Arc Flash, injuries from Arc Blast, and shocks or electrocution. Many of these incidents involve people with little or no experience working with or around electricity. People who work on or near live parts, as well as people responsible for employee safety, need to be up to date on electrical safety in the workplace.
NFPA 70E is used as a descriptive manual to meet the prescriptive requirements of OSHA for safety in the workplace. This seminar provides the vital information you need to reduce injuries and comply with OSHA regulations CFR29-1910 for general industry and 1926 for construction. Retraining is required at least every three years.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify electrical safety hazards and plan protective schemes and techniques to address each hazard
- Explain what safety requirements employers are legally required to provide for their workers
- Recognize the steps needed to work safely on or near live parts
