Arc Flash Electrical Safety NFPA 70E® On-Site Training
A 2-Day Training Course Based on the NFPA 70E® Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®
In addition to keeping workers safe, this course is designed to help companies fulfill their legal requirements relative to OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S Electrical, and NFPA 70E® Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®.
Employers are required to follow the law which will help them avoid lawsuits and keep their workers safe. Knowing the OSHA Qualified Electrical Worker definition and understanding how it is applied to your specific situation will keep you and your workers out of trouble. This course is designed to help you get your organization up to speed and workers properly trained as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
OSHA 1910.399 specifically defines a qualified person as One who has received training in and has demonstrated skills and knowledge in the construction and operation of electric equipment and installations and the hazards involved.
American Trainco helps our customers by providing solutions (the Arc Flash Electrical Safety NFPA 70E® training program, and ATMT® Electrical Safety Testing and Certification program) that may be adopted by employers to meet or assist in both their "received training" and "demonstrated knowledge" requirements as it relates to the qualified person definition. In our optional third day of training we will also show employers how to address the "demonstrated skill" portion of the qualified person definition and provide you with tools and examples of how to set up that process within your own facility.
From a practical perspective, students will gain an immense respect for the power of electricity and the damage it can cause to people and equipment. They will learn about personal safety for working on or around electrical systems and equipment, how to use proper tools, materials and protective gear, and what procedures to use when doing electrical work. In this class, an otherwise dry recitation of rules and regulations is brought to life so that students will take an active and keen interest in learning how to properly protect themselves and others, and understand the potentially deadly consequences if they don't.
The foremost purpose of this training program is to keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. It is also designed to help organizations who are employers of electrical workers comply with OSHA and NFPA 70E® safety standards. From safe work practices and hazard concerns that affect the employee, to the liability, documentation and compliance concerns that affect the employer, we will apply the information presented in this course to your specific needs, circumstances, workers, facilities and equipment. Overall, this program is designed to reduce liability concerns for the employer while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees.
This seminar is a must for anyone who works on or around any electrically energized equipment at industrial plants, utilities or commercial and private building facilities. From machine operators and janitorial personnel, to maintenance workers and experienced electricians - anyone who comes in contact with electrical equipment must receive Electrical Safety training to be in compliance with the requirements of OSHA standard CFR 1910.331-.335.
