$0.00

This FREE 1 hour training program provides an overview of the major changes to the 2021 Edition of NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.  Once again this latest edition is filled with many changes and revisions.

First published in 1979, the 2021 edition places a greater emphasis on the Electrically Safe Work Condition. Many definitions have been revised for greater clarity, Article 110 has been reorganized and includes material from Articles 120 and 130 being relocated to Article 110.

A new subsection for Electrically Safe Work Policy was added, a new informational note regarding the use of interactive web-based training (like learn.brainfiller.com) was added, operating a circuit breaker for the first time after installation is now considered a likelihood of an arc flash.

Guidance regarding risk reduction methods when the incident energy exceeds the arc rating of commercially available PPE when testing absence of voltage, New Article 360 Safety-Related Requirements for Capacitors and much more!
