Date & Time
Thursday, September 2, 2021, 8:55 AM - 9:55 AM
This session will focus on NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, originally developed by the NFPA at OSHA's request. This standard includes the latest information about the effects of arc flash, arc blast, and direct current hazards, and about developments in electrical design and personal protective equipment. The standard aids in compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. The standard continues to evolve to address risk assessment and human factors, such as human error, as part of that assessment. Also discussed will be the changes in the most recent edition of the standard.
