  • Description

    Gain the tools to help you set up an electrical safety program that saves lives. Invest in one day of essential training with NFPA®'s new Developing an Electrical Safety Program Based on NFPA 70E*.

    Having an electrical safety program in place is critical to ensure the safety of personnel in your facility or facilities. Electrical dangers in the workplace cause hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries each year, and electrical incidents are usually more costly and serious than other types of workplace incidents. NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® -- the standard originally developed at OSHA's request -- is the key to saving lives, reducing liability, and avoiding loss due to electrical incidents. This new one-day classroom training from NFPA gives facilities managers, building owners, and others responsible for workplace safety a basic understanding of NFPA 70E's purpose and how to apply it for compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.

    Taught by NFPA 70E experts with a background in facility management, this training helps you outline the roles, responsibilities, and standard operating procedures for electrical safety in each facility. You'll go back to work with a wealth of templates and checklists you can use to help you create an electrical safety program. You'll also be prepared to conduct annual or periodic reviews to validate code requirements and update or modify to existing plans when needed.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • Navigate and critique an existing electrical safety program
    • Understand the steps necessary to build an electrical safety program through the completion of checklists, forms, and exercises
    • Detail the roles and responsibilities of the employer and employee as it relates to an electrical safety program
    • Present the three tiers of the house of electrical safety
    • Identify electrical safety hazards

    *A working knowledge of NFPA 70E is required to attend this class. The following educational tasks have been provided to help you prepare for this training and maximize your experience:

    1. An NFPA 70E pre-class quiz. Take this quiz to test your knowledge and if your score is not what you'd like it to be, you can take NFPA's 6-hour online training series. Even if your score is perfect and you'd like a refresher, the online training is included.
    2. Pre-class webinar. Introduction to NFPA 70E. Available on demand.
    3. Live Q+A with the instructors, Date and Time TBD

    These educational tasks are highly recommended before attending this class.
