OSHA - NFPA 70E Standard
NFPA 70E, titled Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, is a standard of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The document covers electrical safety requirements for employees. The NFPA is best known for its sponsorship of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70). VB Engineering follows all the NFPA 70E standards while performing arc flash analysis and arc flash study report preparation, as the NFPA 70E addresses employee workplace electrical safety requirements. The standard focuses on practical safeguards that also allow workers to be productive within their job functions. Specifically, the standard covers the safety requirements for the following: Electrical conductors and equipment installed within or on buildings or other structures, including mobile homes, recreational vehicles, and other premise (yards, carnival, parking lots, and industrial substations) Conductors that connect installations to a supply of electricity, Other outside conductors on the premises.
VB Engineering will provides training to the workers, after completion of detailed Electrical Safety audit with the arc flash risk assessment audit, as to where to wear PPE and information about danger zones near electrical network. The NFPA was formed in 1896 by a group of insurance firms with the stated purpose of standardizing the new and burgeoning market of fire sprinkler systems. The scope of the NFPA's influence grew from sprinklers and fire extinguishers to include building electrical systems (another new technology), and then into almost all aspects of building design and construction.ReadMore>
