Electrical Safety and NFPA 70E

OSHA has not adopted the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E Code (Electrical Safety in the Workplace). BUT-you are required to have identified the electrical hazards, qualified your employees to the exposing hazards, and equip them with the skills, knowledge, tools, and electrical PPE to protect them.

The 70E code gives employers a well-defined method to accomplish these complex tasks. Sometimes referred to the Arc Flash Standard, both the OSHA Electrical Standards and NFPA 70E code are more comprehensive than just addressing the incident energy for arc flash.

Don’t forget this frequently cited Standard “Listed or Labeled equipment shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions included in the listing and label”. 70E gives the employer the necessary information to achieve a proper equipment maintenance program protecting your people, equipment, facilities, and your investments.

CTTCI can analyze your electrical hazards, select the correct systems, train employees, work with first responders for rescue, and develop written programs when required.
