Combine Installation with Safe Work Practices – 2014 NEC ® & 2012 NFPA 70E® & Arc Flash Analysis
Gain an understanding of the 2014 NEC’s latest additions, revisions and changes. Learn the precautions needed when working with and around electricity. People and property need to be safeguarded from the hazards. The course also covers grounding and bonding and the rules to minimize the risk of electricity as a source of electric shock and as a ignition source of fires and explosions. Then add the safety aspect that everyone needs – NFPA 70E Arc Flash with an Introduction to Arc Flash Analysis – all in 2-days.
First, get an introduction to electrical safety through the NFPA 70E arc Flash safe work practices standard. Then get the ins-and-outs of an arc flash analysis – also known as an arc flash engineering study – in practical layman’s terms.
OSHA’s mandated training requirements apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of 1910.303 through 1910.308. Analysis students generally don’t perform the calculation themselves. Rather they seek to become a more informed user of the data and consumer when working with external contractors.
You will review the electrical system component that affect an arc flash analysis, how to gather the data, and perform the calculations to determine the incident energy levels and hazard risk category for any piece of electrical equipment.
With this understanding we will then review coordination studies and how changes upstream or downstream within the electrical system will impact your analysis.Download Seminar PDF

What You'll Learn
This course starts with the requirements of OSHA rule 1910:331-335. Learn how current 2012 NFPA 70E standards apply to a facility, why safe electrical work practices are important, and what can be done to ensure your organization meets all government standards for electrical safety.
Electrical safety training provides you with the education needed to complete your job safely. According to the US Department of Labor, electrocution is one of the main causes of on-the job deaths of industrial workers. Within this group, skilled trades’ personnel—electricians in particular—are two times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than non-skilled trades personnel.
