NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace
Synopses & Reviews
Avoid accidents and OSHA fines with the 2009 NFPA 70E®: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®!
Shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast are responsible for hundreds of worker deaths and thousands of injuries per year in the U.S. alone. Save lives with NFPA 70E: Electrical Safety in the Workplace, the Standard developed for OSHA that details the "hows" behind compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.
The 2009 edition is revised to recognize new hazards and increase safety on the job.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protects personnel and can significantly reduce the risk of injury in an arc flash. To help engineers calculate incident energy--the first step in determining the correct type of PPE for a given task - a new Annex D in the 2009 NFPA 70E consolidates all equations, adds new tables, and offers more options to detailed calculations. For example, a new utility table derived from the NEC helps utility and industrial plant workers calculate PPE based on voltage and fault current data.
Improved work practices reduce risks:
- A new requirement for Fire Rated clothing for H/R Category 1 precludes the use of cotton clothing. This change reduces the risks for second-degree thermal burns.
Other changes expand your know-how:
- Easy-to-see shading identifies new or revised Standard text.
Engineers, designers, risk managers, maintainers, safety directors, contractors, and owners need the 2009 NFPA 70E to improve worker safety and avoid citations, rising insurance fees, and increased workman's comp costs. (Softbound, 98 pp., 2009)
