Understanding NFPA 70E and the Arc Flash Hazard

10/21/10 12:00 pm to 10/21/10 1:00 am CST

A Safety+Health webinar on Oct. 21, 2010, focused on the causes and consequences of arc flashes, the role of Personal Protective Equipment (and flame-resistant clothing in particular), and recent and pending changes to NFPA 70E.

Working around electricity can be the most dangerous part of any job, and the effects of not performing the job safely can be life-altering. The webinar examined:

  • The dangers of non-FR clothing
  • The current state of compliance law and consensus standards
  • The hazard analysis and protective performance of FR clothing
  • Key considerations for creating a successful FR program

Presenter: Scott M. Margolin, international technical director, Westex, Inc.

Host: Kyle W. Morrison, senior associate editor, Safety+Health.
