Thankfully, the electrical industry has seen a steady improvement in electrical safe work practices over the last several years. Electrical workers are becoming more familiar with and using proper PPE and hazard mitigation techniques. However, many electrical professionals and companies have the wrong perspective when it comes to electrical safety. When we closely evaluate the requirements of the NFPA 70E, it becomes clear that the standard is working to drive workers toward a perspective of prevention over protection. In this webinar, viewers will learn some basics about some of the requirements of NFPA 70E that have been put in place for the safety of electrical workers. Learn the following:          • The difference between a perspective of protection vs prevention          • What steps are required to perform electrical tasks safely          • How do the requirements of the NFPA 70E help to push workers toward hazard preventionOur best tool in providing the best solution is knowledge. The purpose of this webinar is to help provide knowledge about these techniques as well as an understanding of the benefits of the use of these mitigation strategies — and how they can provide a positive improvement on the safety culture for your organization or your client.
