NFPA 70E 2015 Electrical Safety

NFPA 70E 2015 Electrical Safety

Revised every three years, the NFPA 70E is an OSHA recommended industry consensus standard for electrical safety in the workplace. OSHA regulations are general in nature. This standard provides specific practical methods for protecting personnel from the hazards of electricity in your facility. Research is ongoing to improve these practices and the latest 2012 edition includes changes to equipment labeling, GFCI, DC arc flash hazard requirements and more.

Cable Splicing & Terminating, Med-Voltage

Cable Splicing & Terminating, Med-Voltage

Solid dielectric power cable systems are subject to higher voltages than ever before. Inadequate installation and testing of cable splices and terminations is the number one cause of failure (IEEE Std 493-2007 Table 10-33). Yet over the last few decades, cable splicing as a profession has declined as multi-crafting and departmental merges have made it just a function among many.

Circuit Breaker Maintenance, Med.Voltage

Circuit Breaker Maintenance, Med.Voltage

Unlike a low-voltage breaker, medium-voltage breakers rated at 1 kV or higher rely on external controls to operate effectively. That means technicians have more components to test and maintain to ensure a 3 to 5 cycle operating time. Failure of one of these breakers can cause catastrophic damage to other equipment and is extremely hazardous to nearby personnel. With safe and proper maintenance, technicians can ensure that tripping operations execute as required for equipment protec­tion.

Electrical Safety for Industrial Facilities

Electrical Safety for Industrial Facilities

Electrical hazards can result in serious injury or death of personnel that work on or around electrical equipment in industrial facilities. To ensure a safe workplace, personnel must understand electrical safety regulations, electrical hazards, and the use of safe work procedures and protective equipment. Research is ongoing to improve these practices, so employers may have difficulty keeping up with revisions in OSHA, NFPA 70E, NEC and other applicable electrical safety standards.

Electrical Safety for Inspectors

Electrical Safety for Inspectors

This course provides up-to-date information on OSHA General Industry, NFPA 70, 70E, 70B and IEEE standards that are relevant to electrical safety in the workplace. Armed with this knowledge, safety managers, human resources (HR) and risk and loss control personnel can implement an effective self-inspection program that helps prevent electrical accidents, OSHA citations and outages caused by accidents. The information provided in this course prepares participants to recognize existing issues within their facility.
