  • What You'll Learn

    The 2015 edition of NFPA 70E introduces a major change in how stakeholders evaluate electrical risk.

    Key changes include:

    • The activity “hazard analysis” has been replaced with a “risk assessment”
    • Maintenance status is now an integral part of the risk assessment
    • Construction and maintenance work has been separated from outdoor work
    • Updated tables and Approach Boundaries
    • New requirement 320.3 (A)(1) covers risk assessment associated with battery work

    These changes and more clarify the responsibility of the employee, not just the employer. This seminar is frequently combined with our Hands-on Training to enable students to practice demonstrating their safe work techniques and skills.
