Revised every three years, the NFPA 70E is an OSHA recommended industry consensus standard for electrical safety in the workplace. Because OSHA regulations are generic in nature, this standard provides practical methods for protecting personnel from the hazards of electricity in your facility. Research is ongoing to improve these practices and the latest 2012 edition includes changes to equipment labeling, GFCI, DC arc flash hazard requirements and more. The ability to interpret this standard and understand how to apply the requirements is essential to realizing the benefits of NFPA 70E – fewer electrical accidents, improved power system reliability, OSHA compliance and potential discounts on insurance.
