NFPA 70E 2021: Significant Changes in Electrical Safety in the Workplace Standards

Nov 19, 2020

Protective Clothing-96278207 600x400The NFPA 70E 2021 Standard for electrical safety in the workplace has been revised, updated and put into effect. It replaces all previous versions of the standard. A free, on-demand webinar is available to help you understand how these changes impact safety standards.

The new standard includes a significant reorganizing of the General Requirements in Article 110, placing a high priority on hazard elimination. The operation of a common circuit breaker or switch for the first time or after electrical maintenance now has new requirements. 

The new standard expands the types of approved safety trainings, and was adapted to address the changes brought about COVID-19 and the impact it has had on all aspects of daily life.

Recent information keeps pace with today’s developing technologies in battery systems and arc-resistant electrical equipment. This webinar is a must for all qualified workers and safety mangers that need to keep current on electrical safety in the workplace requirements.

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Identify the important changes that were made to the NFPA 70E 2021.
  • Define why these NFPA 70E 2021 changes were made.
  • Create an action plan to begin the process of implementing these changes in your workplace.
  • Discuss the gaps in their own Electrical Safety Programs.

This webinar is available online until October 29, 2021, and may be viewed on-demand at your convenience. Register to gain access to the NFPA 70E 2021 – Significant Changes in Electrical Safety in the Workplace Standards webinar.
