Nebraska Safety Council Offers Arc Flash Electrical Safety Training September 14-15
The Nebraska Safety Council (https://www.nesafetycouncil.org/) is offering a two-day NFPA 70E® Arc Flash Electrical Safety Training course September 14-15, specifically aimed at employees who are electricians, maintenance or repair technicians, safety directors, building engineers, energy-management personnel, and plant or facility managers. Originally developed at OSHA’s request, NFPA 70E® helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast.
The main goal of the Arc Flash Training is to keep workers safe when they are working on or near any electrically energized equipment. It is designed to reduce liability concerns of employers, at the same time maintaining a culture of safe work practices at places of business. The training runs from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days. Day one covers basic safety information and hazards of electricity specific to arc flash, and day two discusses safety requirements for proper maintenance and special equipment, as well as the latest in changes in safety codes. This training does not include any hands-on exercises.
The Nebraska Safety Council is a nonprofit headquartered in Lincoln with a mission to empower people to live safe and healthy lives. Seats for the safety training are limited, so early registration is encouraged. To learn more, visit nesafetycouncil.org or contact Lisa Henning at (402) 483-2511, ext. 109 / email@example.com.
