Electrical and Arc Flash Safety

Target Audience

Electricians, technicians, maintenance workers, engineers, managers and safety professionals who need to follow and adhere to industry and government standards to maintain safe electrical work environments.

Learning Objective

At completion of this eight-hour live online instructor-led course, students will be able to avoid working on or near energized equipment. Where exposure cannot be avoided, students will learn to implement safety procedures to minimize dangers adhering to the guidelines of NFPA 70E.

Abstract

Personnel safety is the most important concern in the workplace.The NFPA 70E sets standards for electrical safety in the work environment and keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. IEEE 1584 sets the industry standard for evaluating the arc flash hazards in a power distribution system and its equipment. 29CFR1910 subparts R and S tie these standards and governmental regulations for electrical safety together. OSHA mandates regarding electrical safety in the workplace specifically require employer assessment of generally recognized hazards in the workplace, and provisions for protecting the employee from those hazards.

  • Procedure for using temporary grounding conductors
  • Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection

Working in a situation where an arc-flash or shock hazard exists

  • Electrically safe working condition and exceptions that might justify working around live parts
  • Working in a situation where an arc flash hazard exists
  • How do power systems engineers determine incident energy and arc flash boundaries

Selecting and using personal protective equipment and insulated tools

  • PPE for electrical work

Here's what students are saying about Eaton's training:

Not only was the course both fun and challenging but the instructor’s direct feedback for improving my knowledge was invaluable. I am able to apply what I’ve learned here for my job.
With 11 years’ experience in the electrical field, I was skeptical about this class. I’m leaving here with a lot of new knowledge and I am happy to have had the opportunity to attend this training.
I learned a lot of safety procedures I was not aware of.
