Arc Flash Electrical Safety

Introduction:

The Electrical Safety and Arc Flash Protection training course is designed to equip people working with electricity with the necessary knowledge to protect themselves from electricity hazards and thus save their lives, prevent disabling injuries, and prevent damage to plants, building and equipment.

Based on latest edition of NFPA 70E standard, students attending this course will gain an immense respect for the power of electricity. They will learn about personal safety for working on or around electrical systems and equipment, how to use proper materials and procedures for doing electrical work - and the potential consequences for themselves or others if they don't.

Taught as if they were our own employees, students are given practical instruction that they can immediately apply when they go back to their workplace. This course also helps companies' meet their OSHA training obligations as outlined in CFR 1910.331-335.
