Electrical Risk Management 101

NFPA 70E arc flash compliance … and more

Accounting for OSHA’s 1910 Sub Part S 300 Series, along with NFPA 70E, isn’t an easy or clear path for interpretation for many employers. OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) includes specific safety compliance elements such as: PPE labeling, personal protection equipment (PPE), value driven one-line electrical diagrams, and lockout/tagout essentials.

Faith Technologies’ electrical risk management programs identify core program compliance needs, strengthen safety cultures, and protect your company’s most valuable asset- your employees.

What 2018 changes in NFPA 70E do you need to know?

HIGHLIGHTS OF NFPA 70E 2018

Key changes to the code include:

  • Significant changes in Article 110 regarding expectations for employees to conduct risk assessments and job planning/briefing
  • Key exceptions that have been inserted within the code that can in some cases be taken with different interpretations regarding article 120.5 and “Establishing an Electrically Safe Condition”
  • Article 130 continues to define two methods for determining arc flash programs, however the 2018 code has introduced some code article topics that Faith Technologies feels is important to review such as “Likelihood of Occurrence” so each employer has a good interpretation on how to manage these code comments.
