Locked Out Electrical EquipmentElectrical safety is a top concern for all types of workplaces. From offices to construction sites, electrical problems are a major risk to people and equipment.

Employers must document NFPA 70E training for qualified and unqualified employees. Training must be taken again once every three years when new the new standard is released. The next is in 2018, so everyone will need training within the next year. Schedule an electrical safety class with T/C Risk Management now so you can stay ahead.

Who Makes the NFPA 70E?

The original NFPA 70E was commissioned in the 1970s by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The NFPA updates the standards every 3 years based on new safety findings and best practice research.
