Safety

Safe Workplace Electrical Practices—NFPA70E
This course is intended for employees who face a risk of electrical hazard from work they perform on equipment and circuits that are not totally de-energized. If lock out is not an option under 1910.333(a)(1) they also need to understand the electrical hazards present and how to incorporate safe work practices into the work they perform. This is not an NEC course, which describes acceptable electrical insulation, but rather a course to address current safe electrical work practices and how to incorporate the new NFPA 70 E requirements into your workplace.
