The foremost goal of this Arc Flash electrical safety training seminar and NFPA 70E Certification is to keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. The seminar is structured to help companies fulfill requirements set forth in OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S Electrical and NFPA 70E® "Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace". This Arc Flash electrical safety seminar is a must for any worker who spends time around electrically energized equipment. Overall, this program is designed to reduce liability concerns for the employer while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees.
The first two days of the three-day class are identical to our traditional lecture course, as outlined HERE. For this seminar, a third day is added so that students can demonstrate what they have learned by participating in classroom exercises and taking the ATMT® (American Trainco Maintenance Technician) Electrical Safety Certification exam. Adding a third day to hone and practice these NFPA 70E electrical safety skills makes meeting OSHA training obligations (under OSHA CFR 1910.331-335 and the NFPA 70E standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®) easier for a wide range of students.
This 3 day seminar is just $1485.
Day One begins with basic electrical safety and qualified electrical worker requirements. From there, the class will examine the hazards of electricity including the components specific to arc flash accompanied by how to identify and prevent possible accidents. Safe work practices are then covered including LOTO and proper PPE.
