Electrical Safety for Utilities (4 Day)
This course provides training for new, multi-craft or experienced electricians, linemen, technicians, engineers, supervisors and safety managers that install, maintain, repair, troubleshoot or work around power generation, transmission and distribution equipment.
NFPA 70E® 2021 (2 Day)
The NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace has been updated for 2021. This updated standard contains significant changes when compared to the 2018 version. The course covers the requirements for working safely in the electrical environment based on the NFPA 70E. Understanding this standard is imperative for compliance with the OSHA mandates regarding electrical safety in the workplace. OSHA specifically mandates employer assessment of generally recognized hazards in the workplace, and provisions for protecting the employee from those hazards. Some of the changes in the NFPA 70E 2021 edition include: the arc flash risk assessment procedures, a revised task-based table to clarify selection methods for arc flash personal protective equipment (PPE), and the electrical safety program requirements for inspection, job safety planning, and incident investigations on electrical equipment.
