NFPA 70 E - STANDARD FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE

Workforce Solutions of Northeast State Community College is sponsoring a seminar on December 5, 2014 at the main campus in Blountville, Tennessee focusing on the requirements for compliance with the 2015 edition of NFPA 70E and the electrical arc flash hazard.

Understanding the definition of arc flash, along with video footage of actual arc flashes, will help participants fully appreciate this hazard to electrical workers. Arc flash calculations will be covered, as well as selection of proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to allow qualified persons to safely work within the arc flash boundary. Insulating voltage-rated tool and glove requirements will be discussed. Training for electrical workers and the Energized Work Permit will be covered. Techniques and ways to "engineer out" the hazard of arc flash will also be discussed.

The instructor, Bob Huddleston, is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Tennessee and serves on the NFPA National Electrical Code-making Panel 6 as voting Principal member.
