    Each year, electrical dangers in the workplace cause hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®— the standard originally developed at OSHA's request—is the key to helping to save lives, reducing liability, and avoiding loss due to electrical incidents. Clear, authoritative instruction teaches you how to apply the 2018 edition of NFPA 70E to assess electrical risks and reduce employee exposure to potentially deadly hazards.

    NFPA® Live Virtual Training presents a unique opportunity to practice in an interactive online environment based on a scenario in a real-world setting. This dynamic, expert-led course uses activities, exercises, videos, job aids, and templates to provide you with the right tools to help set up and follow an electrical safety program, as well as help document safety procedures for compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. Whether you're an employer responsible for personnel safety or an employee tasked with identifying and addressing electrical hazards, NFPA 70E training is vital. A Certificate of Completion is available after the course upon completion of an online exam.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • Pinpoint the changes to the 2018 edition, especially those affecting Article 120, Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition; 110.1 Risk Assessment Procedure; Table 130.5; and standards for PPE.
