NFPA Electrical Safety (NFP01)

NFPA Electrical

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) work hand in hand in creating regulations and standards that promote electrical workplace safety. Particular OSHA regulations enumerate what measures must be taken to protect employees from electrical hazards, while NFPA 70E specifies how to meet these OSHA requirements. To help your regulatory and risk management initiatives, TVTC has designed a NFPA 70E training program in compliance with these electrical safety standards.

What is NFPA 70E?
NFPA 70E is an industry-recognized safety standard that is utilized by employers and employees in compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. Originally created in response to OSHA’s request, NFPA 70E highlights the recommended electrical practices that are in line with established regulatory requirements. Companies even use specific NFPA 70E compliance guidelines nowadays to evaluate and protect workers from arc flash hazards.

Looking for NFPA 70E training solutions?
NFPA 70E Electrical Safety course tackles how to prevent or minimize exposure to widely recognized electrical hazards on the job. The training also covers electrical safety programs and even the relationship between OSHA and NFPA 70E.

Electrical safety training can help save lives and prevent injuries.
