NFPA 70e
Electrical Safety Training

Each year, electrical dangers in the workplace cause hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. NFPA 70E, Standard for electrical Safety in the Workplace®, the Standard originally developed at OSHA’s request — is the key to saving lives, reducing liability, and avoiding loss due to electrical incidents.

This course provides you with the tools to help set up and follow an electrical safety program, as well as help document safety procedures for compliance with OSHA. Whether you’re an employer responsible for personnel safety or an employee tasked with identifying and addressing electrical hazards, NFPA 70E training is vital.
