New 2018 Updates and Changes to NFPA 70E and How to Effectively Implement a Program
About this session:
By now, most organizations have heard of NFPA 70E and the need to protect employees from hazards of electrical shock and arc, however, many times we see the focus is only on arc flash and labeling. One of the most important yet often overlooked areas of electrical safety is the actual development of the safety program itself. In this presentation, Jay will discuss how to implement NFPA 70E and how it relates to OSHA requirements, but he will also discuss how an organization needs to connect all of the pieces of the puzzle: Arc Flash Assessments, Qualified Worker Programs, PPE, LOTO Procedures, and Preventative Maintenance.
