Workforce Solutions of Northeast State is sponsoring a seminar on Dec. 5, 2014 focusing on the requirements for compliance with the 2015 edition NFPA 70E and the electrical arc flash hazard.

Understanding the definition of arc flash, along with video footage of actual arc flashes, will help participants understand this hazard. Arc flash calculations will be covered, as well as selection of proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to allow qualified persons to safely work within the arc flash boundary. Insulating voltage-rated tool and glove requirements will be discussed. Training for electrical workers and the Energized Work Permit will be covered. Techniques and ways to “engineer out” the hazard of arc flash will also be discussed.
