NFPA 70E: ARC FLASH ELECTRICAL SAFETY w/ Grounding & Bonding – Japan
Why You should take this seminar
In this NFPA training seminar we combine installation with safe work practices – NFPA 70E / Grounding & Bonding.
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 trade personnel.
From the beginning, the use of electricity has presented many challenges ranging from how to install a safe electrical system to how to develop minimum code requirements for safe electrical installations. These installations depend on several minimum requirements, many of which are covered in NFPA 70.
This training will also focus on training workers to learn protection fundamentals and performance requirements that are essential for electrical installation, design and inspection. They will also learn how to do this while maintaining the highest level of electrical safety for persons and property.Download Seminar PDF

What You'll Learn
Participants of the NFPA 70E training will gain an understanding of electrical safety training as well as a deeper understanding of grounding & bonding. The seminar is a 4-day intensive classroom program – it is split into 2 days of electrical safety training and 2 days of lecture around grounding & bonding best practices
Topics covered during this training include:
- Safety precautions around electricity, grounding and bonding, and more.
- NFPA 70E Arc Flash electrical safety
- Current 2012 NFPA 70E standards
- Why safe electrical work practices are important
- What can be done to ensure your organization meets all government standards for electrical safety.
Participants learn about grounding requirements as they relate to Article 250 and other articles of the National Electrical Code® (NEC). Installation, testing, and inspection procedures for industrial, commercial, institutional and residential power systems are covered. Learn the rules to minimize the risk of electricity as a source of electric shock, and as an ignition source of fires and explosions.
