NFPA 70E :ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN WORK PLACE

Date: 10 July 2017 - 21 July 2017
Course ID: ADDS058/2017
Duration: 12 Days
Fee US $: 7500 US$
Venue: Geneva / Switzerland
Category: Safety, Security, Fire and Emergency Response Engineering

Introduction:

The aim of this program is to provide comprehensive on-site training to high-risk workers (i.e. skilled trades and maintenance workers) and management on the requirements of Sub Part S, and the prevention of serious injuries from electrical hazards at their worksites. Participants will develop understanding of the requirements of OSHA Sub Part “S” and NFPA, 70E and will be able to identify and reduce or eliminate electrical safety hazards in their workplace. Electrical Safe Work Practices including electrical safety principles, guidelines for qualification of personnel, job planning requirements and Management and Personal Responsibility will be covered.

Who should attend:

The course is targeted to Senior Technicians and Engineers working in Electrical Safety Systems Design, Planning, Installation, Maintenance, and Performance Monitoring.

Daily Outlines:

Chapter One



Introduction to Electrical Safety

• Explain the issues (statistics) associated with poor electrical safety in the workplace.

• Recall key electrical terms which are essential to understanding and meeting the requirements of key electrical safety standards; i.e. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.331-.335, NFPA 70E, NEC (NFPA 70)

• Define and differentiate between qualified and unqualified persons under OSHA Sub Part S. and the training requirements for each.

• Describe the intent of an Electrical Safety Program and list the essential elements of an effective program.

• Use a “Status Check” survey to assess the facility’s electrical safety program and where necessary develop strategies for improvement.



Chapter Two



Identifying the Hazards

• List types of electrical hazards to personnel and describe the nature of the hazards related to:

o Electric shocks, arcs and blasts

o Fault current and potential difference

o Electrical safety in industrial plants

• List the characteristics of an arc flash hazard

• List the characteristics of an arc blast hazard

• Explain how other injury hazards are related to shock, flash, and blast



Chapter Three

OSHA Requirements

• Identify requirements specified in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.301-.308 and NFPA 70E- 2004 Chapter 4 and describe similarities and differences in OSHA and 70E.

• Explain how NFPA 70E is used in OSHA compliance and enforcement.

• Determine training for workers in accordance with OSHA Sub Part S requirements.

• Recall Safe Installation Practices including:

o Guarding

o Identification

o Flexible cords and cables

o System grounding

o Location of overcurrent protection devices

o Workspace clearance requirements

• Assess an electrical installation for compliance with OSHA regulations.

• Explain the reasons for doing a site assessment to determine arc flash hazard potential for equipment and electrical enclosure.



Chapter Four



Safety Related Work Practices

• Identify requirements for electrical safe work practices specified in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.331-.335 and NFPA 70E Chapter 1

• Define an “Electrically Safe Work Condition” and list specific steps to be taken to ensure an electrically safe work condition.

• Explain how the creation of an electrically safe work condition can involve hazards

and the methods to protect against them.

• Describe the facility’s lockout/tagout (LO/TO) procedure including requirements and activities in the procedure and identify the persons responsible for each activity.

• Determine the LO/TO procedure applicable to a given facility, operation, equipment or activity.

• Describe other safety related work practices to protect from electrical hazards including:

• Selection and use of work practices

• De-energized work practices

• Energized work practices

• Approach boundaries and approach distances

• Requirements for use of test instruments and equipment

• Requirements for insulated tools

• Other equipment such as ladders, barricades, signs



Chapter Five



Working On or Near Live Parts

• Identify persons who may be exposed to a source of electrical energy directly or indirectly.

• List the conditions under which “hot work” is allowed.

• Describe the purposes of an energized electrical work permit.

• Recall three types of approach boundaries and define the dimensions of each approach boundary, given all necessary information.

• Describe the essential parts of a Flash Hazard Analysis and list the data required analysis.

• List the information, including Hazard Risk Category, provided to a worker by a Flash Hazard Analysis and describe its use.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

• List the basic types of personal protective equipment (PPE) for tasks involving electrical hazards.

• Describe how each type protects against hazards and identify the limitations of PPE.

• Explain the need for flame resistant (FR) clothing and layering of clothing for protection and list clothing prohibited where electrical hazards are present.

• Select PPE for a given Hazard Risk Category including gloves, eye, head, face protection and (FR) clothing.

• Describe the requirements for use, care, maintenance and storage of PPE.
