May is Electrical Safety Month and throughout the month, NFPA and ESFI have been raising awareness of potential electrical hazards and the importance of electrical fire safety on the job. We’re dedicated to providing valuable, life-saving information to help employees make safe choices and tips for creating a safer work environment.

To that end, NFPA’s senior electrical engineer, Chris Coache, has created a blog series devoted to NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. The series covers a wide range of topics from the role of the contract employer to PPE, energized work permits and justified energized electrical work, and everything in between. If you’ve always wanted to better understand NFPA 70E, this series is for you.

Read the whole series or choose the topics most relevant to you and your job. You can find the series on NFPA’s Xchange platform.

For additional information and resources, check out ESFI’s workplace safety pages on their website, and stay tuned for more electrical worker safety-related topics coming this month.
