While the number of workplace electrical injuries has declined in recent years, the risks of shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast remain a significant health and safety concern. Each week nearly three workers die, and annually thousands are injured by electrical hazards. Many of these incidents could have been prevented through compliance with the latest safety codes and standards.
NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®, is the quintessential resource for helping companies and employees reduce exposure to risks and reduce occupational injuries and fatalities. It was created to provide a document that meets the need of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and is entirely consistent with the NEC and other applicable publications.
The electrical industry is always changing. Make sure you have access to the information you need to prepare for the challenges of the modern electrical workplace.
NFPA 70E provides provisions that help comply with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. This essential standard for anyone with interest in ending electrical-related accidents, liability, and loss offers expert information on subjects ranging from safety-related work practices to special equipment and maintenance requirements. Informative Annexes provide in-depth coverage of personal protective equipment (PPE), developments in electrical design, risk assessment and control, human performance and electrical safety, and many other critical topics.
