2012 NFPA 70E Electrical Safety in the Workplace
Produced by: ERI, Distributed by: Aurora Pictures (2011)
Time: 27 minutes -#VLES016 (D)
The National Fire Protection Association, NFPA, is the leading authority on electrical safety, especially in relation to protecting electrical workers from burn injuries associated with arc blasts. The most recent 2012 NFPA 70E standard has many changes and updates as compared to the outdated 2009 edition. In this program, the dual hazards of electric shock and arc flash are clearly explained and highlighted with dramatic arc flash footage, full-scale explosions and realistic reenactments of flammable clothing ignition due to arc flash incidents. While convincing your workers of the importance of wearing proper PPE, the video also explains the critical parts of the 2012 70E standard in detail. Topics include qualified electrical worker requirements, creating an electrically safe working condition, confirming a zero energy state, energized electrical work permits, approach boundaries, incident energy level, arc flash boundaries, hazard risk categories and how to properly dress for arc flash protection.
