In preparation for the release of the 2018 edition of NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace we’re hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, July 12 from 10:00 – 10:30 AM EDT that will help explain the proposed changes and provide an opportunity for participants to ask question about the revised code.

Whether you’re an electrician, electrical engineer, contractor, facility manager, property owner, building manager or a safety engineer responsible for electrical safety in your workplace, this is a chance to get a first-hand look at the proposed changes that could impact the industry as a whole, as well as the work you do every day.


The webinar, “Proposed Changes to the 2018 Edition of the NFPA 70E,” will feature NFPA’s Chris Coache, senior electrical engineer, and Derek Vigstol, electrical technical lead, who will discuss some of these important proposed changes in the 2018 revision. They include:

• Risk assessment procedure; the hierarchy of risk controls and human error
• Establishing an electrically-safe work condition that includes Lockout/Tagout principles and procedures
• Estimate of the likelihood of occurrence of an arc flash incident for AC and DC systems
• Selection of arc-rated clothing and other personal protective equipment (PPE) using the incident energy analysis method


This event will fill up quickly and we don't want you to be left out. Be among the first to learn more about the 2018 edition of NFPA 70E and register for the webinar today!
