NFPA 70E Arc Flash & Arc Blast Protection Training

Course Length: 4 hours

Electrical safety training including arc flash and arc blast awareness training is not only a good idea, it’s the law. OSHA 29 CFR1910.332 requires training for all employees who experience a heightened risk of electrical exposure on the job. Failure to comply can not only result in fines and penalties leveled at your company by OSHA but very severe injuries and possibly even death to personnel. Our online training tool can help.

Our safety training course is designed around OSHA Regulations 29 CFR1910 subpart S, and the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. It is updated regularly to reflect changes to the code as they occur. Our arc flash awareness training exercise strives to explain to the participant the history of arc flash as well as the federal regulations that have been put in place to help ensure worker safety.

The trainer stresses the importance and the benefits of working safely as well as the possible consequences of unsafe disregard of the OSHA regulations.

Whether you are an individual interested in arc flash or a skilled maintenance or construction person that comes in contact with live electrical circuits every day, this training can help you stay more aware of the dangers associated with arc flash.
