It is hard to imagine but the 2024 revision cycle for NFPA 70E is well underway. Thinking about the evolution of this important electrical safety standard which was first published back in 1979 (I was still in college) I have had discussions with various individuals about its trajectory. Let me explain.

The standard originally began with the intent of clarifying OSHA requirements to protect electrical workers in the field and was written from the workers perspective. Over time, more and more administrative requirements have been added as well as more technical details. The discussion that I have had with many people over time is about their concern that NFPA 70E may be getting too slanted towards a management perspective and too complicated for use by the electrical worker.

This week’s question:

Since first introduced in 1979, do you believe NFPA 70E has become:
• Too administrative
• Too technical
• Both too administrative and technical
• Neither - It is a Good balance as is

Your thoughts are encouraged and welcome!
