OSHA Outlet Launches NFPA 70E Training Online
OSHA Outlet, the country's premier provider of online construction safety training, has launched comprehensive NFPA-70 Training online. Their 3-1/2 hour course gives students a thorough overview of 2009 NFPA 70E requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE), teaches them how to analyze electrical risks and hazards, and take the actions needed to avoid injuries.
“Our company is responsible for the safety and health of thousands of employees working with electricity every day. In my expert opinion, one of the key differences between receiving a life threatening injury and going home safely is understanding the principles that we teach in this class,” said Vince Hundley, CSP, MS, Arc Flash expert and President of OSHA Outlet.
“This course provides invaluable safety guidance for electrical contractors, electricians, contractors, maintenance personnel and others who work with electrical installations,” says Mr. Hundley. Their NFPA-70E course is divided into five modules: 1) Introduction to Electrical PPE; 2) Protection from Shock and Electrocution; 3) Protection from Arc Flash; 4) Protection from Arc Blast; and 5) General Protection from Electrical Injuries. Participants will receive a printable certificate validating completion.
NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) 70E is the standard for electrical safety in the workplace. This course was adapted from the booklet, "A User's Guide to Electrical PPE, Based on NFPA 70E," by Ray A. Jones, a top-ranking expert in electrical safety and chairman of the NFPA 70E Technical Committee; and Jane G. Jones. Their combined expertise provides an unmatched resource to enable OSHA compliance and help prevent electrical accidents and injuries.
