ARC FLASH TRAINING COURSES
OSHA has recognized electrical safety as a primary focus for employees. Employers who allow their employees to work on or troubleshoot electrical equipment shall be trained in the proper work procedures and proper PPE in relation to arc flash. Employees exposed to electrical hazards are required to undergo NFPA 70E/arc flash training on interims not to exceed three (3) years.
The consequences of not performing this crucial training for employees can result in serious fines imposed by OSHA or, even worse, employee injuries and death. Arc flash injuries typically result in burns to the hands, face, and neck, so the purpose of training is to prepare employees for those hazards and teach them how to protect themselves against such hazards. PPE is not the best answer for electrical safety. A hierarchy of controls allows the employer and employee to reach a safe level of work when exposed to electrical hazards. Understanding that PPE is one piece of a puzzle in employee safety means that the employee and employer are working together for the safety of everyone.
