NFPA 70E®: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®, 2004 Edition
|Item # 70E04|
OSHA bases its electrical safety mandates on NFPA 70E®: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®. Prevent accidents and comply!
Electrical dangers such as shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast will always be present on the job, but proper training and safety strategies can minimize the likelihood of injuries and fatalities. NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace covers the full range of electrical safety issues, from work practices to maintenance, special equipment requirements, and installation.
OSHA evaluates compliance with its electrical safety regulations, OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K, using the comprehensive information in NFPA 70E. While OSHA tells you what to do to avoid electrical dangers, this vital Standard tells you how.
Changes and updates in the 2004 edition help reduce risks and accidents:
- New requirement for a signed authorization for energized electrical work
- New language concerning multi-employer relationships requires all contractors on a project to be aware of hazards, PPE, safe work practices, and emergency evacuation procedures.
- Installation requirements correlate with the 2002 National Electrical Code®.
- New and revised definitions clarify electrical safety issues such as arc rating, incident energy, and restricted approach boundary.
- Updated PPE requirements reflect the latest technology.
Organized like the NEC®, this edition's format and organization save time and help eliminate errors!
- The discussion of Safety Related Work Practices has been moved to Chapter 1, to emphasize the topic's importance.
- Chapter 1 has been totally reorganized, with all related provisions grouped together in logical progression.
- Two cross-references let you easily compare provisions in the 2004 and 2000 editions.
- New Annexes for a Sample Energized Work Permit, General Categories of Electrical Hazards, and a Sample Job Briefing Form, plus an updated Sample Arc Flash Calculations Annex, help you work smarter.
Avoid costly accidents and meet OSHA mandates by putting the 2004 NFPA 70E to work.
