Employers are required to provide a workplace safe from all recognized electrical hazards. To accomplish this goal an employer must incorporate applicable regulations in OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and 1926, as well as best industry practices outlined in consensus standards like the NFPA 70E® . This course covers hazards associated with working on or near exposed energized parts and safe work practices that could be implemented to reduce or eliminate these hazards. Attendees receive a copy of NFPA 70E®.
Who should attend?: Electricians, Technicians, Maintenance Personnel, Engineers, Facilities or Maintenance Supervisors, and other qualified workers who may use a tester or work on electrical parts on an assembly line and are required to have electrical safety training to keep up with changes to NFPA 70E® 2018.
