Our Advanced NFPA-70e Training Workshop is designed to engage students in an interactive learning environment. Students will be led through a series of exercises that will instruct them how to design or improve their existing Electrical Safety Management Systems, Electrical Safety Programs, and how to implement the "NFPA-70e Workplace Electrical Safety" standard into the workplace, creating a safer workplace environment.
This information will impact on Arc Flash Hazard Labeling, Arc Flash Studies, PPE Program Development, and contain important information about how NFPA-70e impacts on electrical safety regulations.
This workshop will elaborate on the tables and annexes discussed in our Basic NFPA 70e training course, as well as provide a detailed review of the NFPA-70e Annexes not covered in our one-day Basic NFPA-70e Awareness Program.
THIS WORKSHOP COVERS THESE NFPA 70e ANNEXES NOT COVERED IN OUR BASIC ONE-DAY PROGRAM
THIS COURSE WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO:

1-Day Advanced NFPA-70e Electrical Safety Training
General information and introduction
Developing a plan takes knowing where you are now with your electrical safety program, understanding the steps necessary to comply with the standard and then creating a plan to move forward.
One of the most important steps in the process is the preparation stages. In this session we will discuss the manuals, documents, test reports and data required to set the base line of information required to assist you in complying with the standard.
Documents, manuals and materials required
Single Line Diagrams
Past Inspection Reports
Reviewing Past Test Reports
Protective Relay Data
Preparing for an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
Which method to choose:
Method 2: Selection based on hazard risk categories
Method 1: Selection based on incident energy analysis

NFPA-70e Annex F - Hazard/Risk Evaluation/Assessment Procedure
A Hazard/Risk Evaluation is an analytical tool consisting of a number of discrete steps intended to insure that hazards are properly identified and evaluated, and that appropriate measures are taken to reduce those hazards to achieve an adequate risk reduction.
This procedure is a comprehensive review of the task and associated foreseeable hazards which use event severity, frequency, probability, and avoidance to determine the level of safe practices employed.
NFPA-70e Annex H - Detailed Two-Category Method For Determining proper PPE Protection.
For a more simplified approach, Annex H - provides a simplified, two-category, FR clothing system. This approach provides minimum PPE for electrical workers within facilities with large and diverse electrical systems.
