In January, NFPA launched the Certified Electrical Safety Worker program for professionals who work on electrical equipment and circuits, including construction electricians, maintenance electricians, and other electrical workers. It followed the launch in mid-2013 of the NFPA Certified Electrical Safety Compliance Professional, which targets those responsible for overseeing a workplace electrical safety program. Both of these certifications can help companies create and maintain an electrically safe workplace, says Jeff Sargent, in his column “Certified Safe” in the latest issue of NFPA Journal.
Certified electrical safety compliance professionals and certified electrical safety workers understand what it takes to make a workplace electrically safe, and they are qualified to develop, manage, and maintain a company’s electrical safety assets.
Together, says Sargent, these two certification programs associated with NFPA 70E®, Electrical Safety in the Workplace® are the industry gold standards for certification.
