NFPA 70E: Are you compliant or safe?


2/6/19 12:00 pm to 2/6/19 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Why should we be concerned with electrical safety? Although they’re not the leading cause of on-the-job injuries, electric arc flashes are dangerous and the injuries that result can be costly to treat. In this webinar, you’ll gain insights into NFPA 70E 2018 arc flash personal protective equipment requirements. You’ll learn there is a difference between being compliant and being safe – one is required, and the other is your responsibility.

You’ll learn:

  • What the OSHA General Duty Clause states
  • How to choose the right PPE for the job
  • Arc flash and electrical safety facts
  • Verifying protection
