Electrical hazards can cause serious injury and result in high OSHA fines. As a facility owner/operator, you are responsible for protecting people and creating a safe work environment. Understanding and complying with NFPA 70E (also known as the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace) is key to minimizing electrical workplace hazards.

What is the NFPA 70E Standard?

The NFPA 70E standard was designed to help companies and employees meet OSHA regulations and avoid workplace injuries and fatalities from shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. The standard outlines a course of action for OSHA compliance that includes assessment, safety program, and training.

  • Ensure the safety and reliability of your facility
  • Protect your employees and vendors
  • Reduce your liability and risk of citations and fines
