Learn whats new? Whats changed? in the 2018 NFPA 70E

 

In a fraction of a second, an electrical incident can claim lives and cause permanently disabling injuries. In fact, hundreds of deaths and thousands of burn injuries occur each year due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast -- and most could be prevented through compliance with NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. Originally developed at OSHA's request, NFPA 70E responds to the latest information about the effects of arc flash, arc blast, and direct current (dc) hazards, and recent developments in electrical design and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Electrical equipment and electrical safety devices are constantly being changed and improved, hence why your electrical safety program must address those changes. The NFPA 70E  2018 edition addresses these changes. This standard is used not only by facility managers and safety officers, but also by OSHA inspectors, continually educating them on existing trends in electrical safety.

Topics Include:

1. Are qualified persons required to complete a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) before starting work?

2. What should we look for in PPE labels in 2018?

3. Arc flash and shock hazard risk assessment now include the "potential of human error."

4. Electrical safety programs must include a section on how to investigate an incident/accident.
