ELECTRICAL SAFETY BASED ON THE 2018 NFPA 70E Standard

2-DAY HANDS-ON ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE

The ONLY two day, “Hands-On” skill based training program that covers everything you and your staff need to know about the significant changes being made to NFPA 70E®.

NFPA 70E® Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®NFPA 70E® requirements are designed to protect workers by reducing exposure to electrical shock hazards. NFPA 70E® helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast, and assists in complying with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.

Learn by doing!

This course enhances the typical PowerPoint “lecture-only” format embraced by various training organizations for the past many years. Providing a “hands-on” experience and scenario based exercises where attendees perform the same decision-making and safety skills they must demonstrate in the field is what NTT Electrical Safety Training is all about.

Live Hands-on Labs

The NFPA 70E® Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace provides the prescriptive methods for OSHA compliance for electrical safe work. NTT Training provides the hands-on instructor demonstration and student practice for implementing the standard. Scenario-based exercises have students work with NTT’s illustrated and annotated explanation of the NFPA 70E helping to ensure they understand the requirements.

Practical Risk Assessment

With the publication of the 2018 edition of the electrical safety standard, the NFPA 70E® continues to emphasize a risk assessment approach to electrical safety. For the NTT student, this means learning to identify the hazards of an electrical job, assessing what can be done to eliminate hazards, understanding methods of mitigating hazards and, how to use best industry practices to comply with requirements, and achieve a safe-as-practical approach to performing electrical work.

Combine this course with our other hands-on practical electrical classes:

  • Electrical Safety Practical Skills for Low Voltage Switchgear
  • Field Audit Exercises
  • Working Greater than 600 volts
  • NFPA 70B Maintenance hands-on workshop

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

  1. Understand the new Risk Assessment approach to Electrical Safety
  2. Apply OSHA rule 1910.331-335 training requirements and NFPA 70E® standards
  3. Understand the effect of maintenance on equipment and how it reduces injury
  4. Test instruments making contact with energized parts
  5. Perform safe electrical work practices and understand arc flash hazards and boundaries
  6. 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.

  • Why You should take this training program

    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. Additionally, this course is available as a Live Online Training Program, learn more about all of these offerings here.

    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.


    Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Contact Hours

    Upon completion of this training program, the attendee will receive a certificate of completion with 8 contact hours (.8 CEUs) per day attended. Please contact your state or local licensing agency to determine if this training program is accepted.

  • What You'll Learn

    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.
  • Training Program Description

    Electrical Safety and Your Electrical Safety Program

    • Trainees start off receiving a brief overview of electrical safety history.
    • Using the NTT’s illustrated and annotated explanation of the NFPA 70E Standard, trainees will identify electrical safety program requirements.
    Trainees will compare those requirements to their own company’s electrical safe work program.

    Understanding Electrical Hazards

    Trainees participate in group exercises around risk awareness.
    • Information regarding the risks of shock, arc flash, and arc blast are presented.
    • Trainees review shock potentials and incident energy levels in a facility distribution system.
    • They will learn to mitigate shock and arc flash hazards based on NFPA codes and technical hands-on interactions.

    Electrical Safe Work Practices and Procedures.

    • Safe work practices identified in NFPA 70E are laid out in steps.
    Trainees will learn these steps as they use the NTT Job Aid to develop a Job Safety Analysis (JSA). This JSA will be used throughout the remainder of the class for hands-on activities.

    Electrical Personnel Protective Equipment

    • Trainees will discuss characteristics and maintenance of various types of PPE.
    • The instructor will demonstrate proper donning and doffing techniques.
    Trainees will use the checklist in their text to inspect NTT or student supplied PPE.

    Normal Operation of Equipment

    • Discussion of NFPA 70E’s five requirements of electrical equipment to achieve Normal Operation status.
    • Trainees will perform a visual inspection of the NTT electrical equipment for installation and maintenance issues.
    • Examples of good and bad installations are discussed, including proper body positioning and techniques for typical switching operations.
    Trainees will use the table in the NFPA 70E Standard to determine the need for PPE.
    Hands-on use of an infrared camera through an infrared window, an ultrasonic detector, and the setup and use a remote indicating multimeter; reducing exposure to hazards.
