Many workers are unaware of how using NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace reduces their risks to electrical hazards. This Standard is not only important, it helps companies comply with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. Revised to reflect the latest edition of NFPA 70E, the new NFPA 70E Handbook offers explanations and advice to help you interpret the Standard and make the right decisions every day on the job.
OSHA is the "what" and NFPA 70E is the "how." The 2018 edition NFPA 70E Handbook provides the "whys" and the support you need.
- The Handbook includes the entire 2018 NFPA 70E text plus exclusive commentary that explains requirements and their intent, breaks down tasks, and addresses different equipment and scenarios.
- Commentary is also provided on major updates, such as the modified arc flash hazard identification table [Table 130.7(C)(15)(A)(a)] that makes it easier to determine the likelihood that an arc flash could occur, and key changes to Article 320 that introduce voltage thresholds of 100 Vdc specifically for batteries and battery rooms.
- More than 150 full-color photos, charts, and illustrations bring safety concepts to life -- invaluable on the job and for worker training.
- Summary of Technical Changes at the beginning of the Handbook highlights revisions in the 2018 edition.
- Supplements include a list of requirement headings from the 2017 NEC® that directly impact the implementation of safety-related work practices, extracted material from NFPA 70B: Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance on electrical equipment maintenance, and guidance in writing a safety procedure.
- New to this edition is the "OSHA Connection" feature, which shows how OSHA's electrical safety standards correspond with certain NFPA 70E requirements.
- Also new for 2018 is the "Worker Alert" feature, which highlights crucial electrical safety information specifically for the employee.
