Kansas 6 Hour Electrical Elective Topic: Electrical Safety in the Workplace
- 6 Hour Course
This continuing education course provides 2 hours of content based on OSHA Safety Training for electricians and four hours on the 2021 edition of NFPA 70E, the pre-eminent industry Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. The class uses video, images, graphics, charts, and slides to give a comprehensive view of how to best use NFPA 70E to make working with electricity as safe as possible.
The OSHA content provides a wide-ranging survey of safety considerations that impact electricians on job sites, including the most common causes of injury and how to prevent them, general rules for job safety in the building trades, and the specific OSHA requirements that apply to electricians.
The material on NFPA 70E-2021 presents the significant changes made during both the 2015-2018 and 2018-2021 review cycles to the three key Articles used in safety training, 110 (General Requirements), 120 (Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition), and 130 (Work Involving Electrical Hazards). Changes made during the past decade have fundamentally changed NFPA 70E so that it is now an irreplaceable companion to the NEC, with Chapter 1 essentially a pull-out training manual for working safely with electricity.
