Overview

Performing electrical work can be extremely hazardous, and new standards have been created to help electricians work safely. This video training provides an overview of the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) Code 70E standard. It explains the need to de-energize equipment prior to working on it, when working on energized systems may be permissible, and the permitting process for working on energized systems. Setting the approach boundary and how to determine and set arc flash boundaries are discussed. It covers the use of arc-rated clothing and equipment and where to find guidance in the new NFPA 70E standard. Also addressed are hazard risk categories and the types of personal protective equipment required for each category.

Because of the dangers of arc flashes, a moment’s inattention or a simple mistake when working with or around electrical systems can be deadly. This video training helps qualified electricians understand the new safety standards and the need for vigilant compliance with risk management rules.
