What is the NFPA 70E?

The standard NFPA 70E was developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) at the request of OSHA. The 70E covers electrical safety requirements in the workplace for employees. The National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and the National Electrical Code (NEC) also required subparts of the NFPA 70E.

Electrical Codes and Standards Training Institute (ECSTI) has collaborated with the Stallcup’s to create a hands on, illustrated course series based on the 70E code changes. The goal in creating this course is to make the rules and regulations easy to understand and enforce in any safety training and workplace.

  • Designers must design and layout electrical systems to meet the provision of the OSHA standards.

     

  • Installers are required to install and wire electrical systems to comply with the NEC and provide safety for the employee working in his or her workplace.

     

  • Inspectors must inspect the electrical system to ensure that it not only complies with the NEC, but also provides the necessary safety requirements of OSHA and NFPA 70E.

The Stallcup’s 2015 NFPA 70E code book and interactive series course will provide electricians with the most recent updates on the revisions that have taken place. This course will give electricians a jump start on the information they need in order to interpret and apply some of the changes required by OSHA.

In their course the Stallcup’s give the appropriate reasons for revisions and new articles are given, along with what kind of impact such changes will have on:

  • Manufacturers

     

  • Designers

     

  • Installers

     

  • Inspectors

For every proposal made for a change, there was a reason, this course and book series will provide the reasons why the changes were made.
