Arc Flash Hazards And NFPA-70E: How To Protect Your Employees And Stay In Compliance

Webinar: ID# 1001399
About This Course:
Tragically, arc flash incidents can be fatal for your workers and the health of your business. The fact is that each year more than 2,000 people are treated in burn centers with severe arc flash injuries.

The average medical costs for an arc flash victim are a staggering $1.5 million and the average cost of litigation ranges from $10 - $15 million. Even if a flash incident does not cause a career-ending injury or death, your employee could be out for several months, leading to serious dips in productivity and profit.

Surprisingly, given the high human and dollar costs, many employers are unclear on the OSHA rules relating to electrical hazards. Common questions include:

  • What, exactly, does OSHA require?
  • Is arc-flash PPE required by law?
  • Should you follow the NFPA standard 70E, or is something additional required?

Government enforcers vigorously conduct electrical hazard inspections and issue citations using a number of existing OSHA standards. These standards tend to be general enough to provide a basis for compliance enforcement but not specific enough for abatement. Enter NFPA 70E, which provides the means to fix the problems.

Join us for an in-depth webinar where the presenter, a seasoned certified safety professional, will teach you how to protect your employees from arc flash hazards and apply the NFPA 70E standard.
