Arc Flash Hazards: Using NFPA 70E to Protect Employees and Meet OSHA Electrical Safety Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to protect workers from arc flash hazards by following NFPA 70E standards and meet OSHA electrical safety requirements.

Every year, 2,000 workers on average are treated for severe burns from arc flash incidents. These incidents are both devastating to the victims and costly for employers—in lost time, workers’ compensation and medical costs, and potential OSHA citations.

Violations of OSHA’s electrical safety standards—particularly after a serious injury or fatality—can easily lead to six-figure fines. Therefore, it is imperative that employers take proactive steps to protect employees from arc flash and other common electrical hazards.

When designing a comprehensive electrical safety program, integrating OSHA’s regulatory requirements with the NFPA 70E electrical safety consensus standard is often a key pain point for employers. While NFPA 70E is updated every three years with advancements in technology and information and is current to 2018, OSHA’s electrical safety 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 seeking to use NFPA 70E to implement their electrical safety program while maintaining compliance with OSHA standards.

Use this on-demand webinar on how to integrate OSHA’s electrical safety regulations with NFPA 70E consensus standards into an effective and comprehensive electrical safety program.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able 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
  • Determine your training obligations for qualified and unqualified workers
