Do you have people working on or around energized equipment? Then, NFPA 70E training is required. OSHA is using NFPA 70E as a national consensus standard, so it is vital that your team understands all the requirements. Per NFPA, anyone working on or around energized equipment needs training on electrical safe work practices.
If you are interested in finding out how to protect yourself and others from potential electrical accidents, we offer training seminars to help get you caught up to speed on NFPA 70E requirements. We can even come to your facility to provide the training.
