NFPA 70E® Electrical Safety Training

While still perfect as an introduction to Electrical Safe Work Practices, NTT has updated this course to be hands-on to reflect the more practical and advanced approach our clients have been demanding.

This course still covers the basics from the three (3) hazards of electricity and what you can do with your equipment and procedures to mitigate the hazards, but we now also advance to the completely difference mindset of the Risk Assessment approach and end with what to do if something goes wrong with our Emergency Response Team simulation.

The NFPA 70E® is used by all states for industry-wide electrical standards and is updated every 3-years.

This training meets the electrical safety training requirements for employees bound by OSHA rule 1910:331-335.

People who will benefit from attending this course include:

  • Electricians
  • “Authorized” Persons
  • Mechanics
  • Environmental health & safety personnel
  • Apprentice and experienced HVAC technicians
  • Supervisors working on or who oversee employees working on 50V or greater equipment
  • Linemen & Utility workers
  • Owners & managers
  • Warehouse employees
  • Maintenance Technicians
  • Energy management personnel
  • Fire Alarm Technicians
  • Plant & facility maintenance technicians
  • Building engineers
  • Building managers & superintendents
  • Plant & facility managers
  • Stationary engineers
  • Safety directors

This is a 2-day, Hands-on Electrical Safety Course based on NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, 2018 Edition

This course takes Electrical Safety Training from a lecture-based format to a hands-on and scenario based approach of “learn by doing.”

As you work through the hands-on labs you’ll learn the practical aspects changed in this new edition like:

  • Risk assessment procedure; the hierarchy of risk controls and human errors
  • Establishing an electrically-safe work condition that includes Lockout/Tag out principles and procedures
  • Estimate of the likelihood of occurrence of an arc flash incident for AC and DC systems
  • Selection of arc-rated clothing and other personal protective equipment (PPE) using the incident energy analysis method

At the end of this training program, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the new Risk Assessment approach to Electrical Safety
  • Apply OSHA rule 1910.331-335 training requirements and NFPA 70E® standards Understand the effect of maintenance on equipment and how it reduces injury
  • Test instruments making contact with energized parts
  • Perform safe electrical work practices and understand arc flash hazards and boundaries
  • Certification: This training program is approved by and can to lead to certification through North American Technician Excellence (NATE). Testing for this certification is administered by a NATE testing organization.
