The webinar will explore proposed changes in NFPA 70E, NFPA 2112, ANSI/ISEA 107 and a new arc flash protection standard for multi-material protector gloves. These proposed changes could change PPE purchasing specifications and buying patterns for garments, gloves and other PPE affecting electrical workers and petrochemical workers.
Discussion includes developing an electrical safety program by identifying hazards, assessing risks, and implementing the hierarchy of risk control methods. There is also a focus on engineering designs and adopting a forward-looking strategy rather than "chasing safety afterward."
With over 160 accident investigations some common themes show up valuable in developing PPE programs, training for electrical safety and doing accident investigations. Asking the right questions and observing the evidence give insights into worker behavior.
Laundry concerns and chemical outcomes for workers using flame resistant garments will be dealt with including conflicting studies on off gassing and other rumors and some facts on multiple flame resistant fabrics.
New and proposed standards to make protection better. New arc flash protector glove standard and arc flash glove test methods will increase the quality of protection and multi-hazard protection for hands for cut, puncture, arc and potentially flash fire.
From clean rooms to nuclear facilities to food processing and chemical, there are many PPE challenges which are not addressed in the NFPA 70E standard. How do you deal with these challenges?
Ask your questions and we’ll focus on answering them after covering some of the common specialty questions I get every month. This will be our most interactive webinar this year.
The following challenges will be addressed: Arc flash study reduction for equipment >40 cal/cm2; New arc resistant equipment and the limitations of use; Implementing the new NO PPE rule for operations, risks and benefits and practical solutions; New minimum label requirements for arc flash and best practices; Help, our equipment manufacturer stopped at the MCC; and much more.
The 2015 edition of the NFPA 70E standard includes a major change in how stakeholders evaluate electrical risk - so that owners, managers, and employees can work together to ensure an electrically safe working area and comply with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. There are updated tables, a new subsection in 130.2 (A)(4) that provides requirements where normal operation of electric equipment is permitted, and Annex E has been updated to correlate with the redefined terminology associated with hazard and risk.
Find out how the new OSHA standard changes everything for generation, transmission and distribution. Join electrical safety expert Hugh Hoagland for this informative webinar focusing on the changes to OSHA standard 1910.269 and 1926.950-60. Topics will include an overview of the changes and practical advice on meeting the new standard for utilities.
The proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is a critical component of any electrical safety program yet proper PPE use often is overlooked, diminished, or simply disregarded by electrical workers in manufacturing. Plant Engineering presented this Webcast on December 5th, 2013 discussing the importance of PPE to mitigate arc flash dangers and other electrical safety issues.
OSHA is changing the regulations from the 1910.269, 1926, and 1910.300 series affecting utilities, construction, and general industry. This electrical safety webinar reviews these changes and their impact on companies in these industries. Registration required.
In March 2013, OSHA made several changes to the regulations from 1910.269, 1926 and 1910.300 series affecting utilities, construction and general industry. This webinar reviewed these changes and their impact on industry.
Most companies following the latest version of NFPA 70E or the NESC will be unaffected as these regulations bring the OSHA standards into compliance with the 2012 versions of these documents with a few adjustments.
Hundreds of deaths and thousands of disabling injuries continue to occur annually due to shock, electrocutions, arc flash and arc blast. Still, according to NFPA, most of these electrical accidents could be prevented through 70E compliance. The 2012 edition of the 70E standard makes it easier to ensure an electrically safe working area.
The NESC sets ground rules for safeguarding employees through installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply and communication lines and equipment. This webinar looks at critical changes resulting in reduced PPE costs and offers suggestions for avoiding unnecessary paperwork. Additionally, the presentation provides information to get your program compliant with the updated program and OSHA requirements.
