Live Webinar: Thursday, March 14, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to attain electrical safety compliance program synergy that aligns with OSHA regulations and NFPA 70E, and prevent life-threatening and costly mistakes.


 

When designing a comprehensive electrical safety program, one of the biggest challenges you’ll face is integrating OSHA regulatory requirements with the NFPA 70E electrical safety consensus standard. Another challenge is reducing the risk of life-threatening and costly electric shock and arc flash incidents. 2,000 workers are treated every year for severe burns from arc flash incidents.

NFPA 70E is updated every three years with advancements in technology and information and is current to 2018, whereas OSHA’s electrical rule has only been updated to parts of the 2004 version of NFPA 70E. Yet OSHA inspectors will use NFPA 70E as a reference when they inspect workplace electrical safety programs. The result is confusion for safety managers in terms of compliance when they use NFPA 70E to implement their electrical safety program.

One thing is clear, however. When you begin to address electrical hazards, there are basic elements that need to be addressed such as arc flash, protective clothing, proper equipment, adequate training, qualifications of workers, de-energizing of equipment, lockout/tagout procedures, safe work practices, and others. NFPA and OSHA address these elements and provide detailed requirements and suggestions.

Join us on March 14 to learn how to integrate the OSHA electrical safety regulations and the NFPA 70E consensus standards in to an effective and comprehensive electrical safety program. Our presenter, a seasoned safety professional who has been intimately involved with the NFPA 70E Standard, including the 2018 changes and ongoing OSHA electrical regulatory development, will provide strategies for ensuring that your existing program is up to date.  


You’ll learn how to:

  • Analyze, compare, and assess OSHA electrical safety regulations and NFPA 70E electrical safety consensus standards
  • Take measures to avoid workplace safety violations, injuries, and fatalities related to electric shock and arc flash hazards
  • Recognize how NFPA 70E 2018 relates to OSHA regulations, and how it can help you develop an integrated electrical safety program
  • Identify methods for determining what personal protective equipment is necessary
  • And more!

And, as a bonus for attending you’ll get BLR’s Safety Toolbox Talk: Arc flash safety: an electrically safe work condition and Workplace Safety Solution’s article entitled Legal Implications for Failing to Maintain Your Electrical Infrastructure.
