NFPA 70E Training with a TWIST e-Hazard.com Offers Online & DVD NFPA 70E experts online to answer your questions
Want to do refresher training online or train a worker at a small location?
e-Hazard’s Best Training Now Online or DVD too!
Don’t use just any video and hope OSHA does cite you.
So in our online and our DVD version we do something no competitor we know of does. We get online with your worker, go over the homework assignments, answer questions and evaluate the training knowledge. ONLY then does e-Hazard offer a certificate of training. Just like in our classroom version. And unlike most of our competitors, you can have an NFPA 70E member answer your questions (members do not speak for NFPA).
We still recommend our live training but now you have an option.
Use our Online modules for a Tool Box Talk.
You can even use the video modules for quick safety meetings to cover parts of the training your folks have already received from us or to supplement other training (no certificate without the live session for each worker but you can show the video in a training room for a high quality Toolbox Talk). Most of the videos are less than 20 min long.

NFPA 70E TIA Narrowly Fails in Committee Vote
NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® proposal for a TIA (Tentative Interim Amendment) failed in a close committee vote according to numerous committee members.
This TIA would have removed the exemption for 240V and below circuits from arc flash analysis. The committee is considering different language for the 2012 standard which would make the exemption narrower while still affording ease of analysis for lighting circuits, for instance while not making a blanket exemption for 208 circuits with 3-phase arc flash potential.
Proposed TIA No. 981 – Comment Closing Date: 2/1/2010

ESW Keynote Flies Safety Home
The Monday IEEE Electrical Safety Workshop keynote speaker was impressive. A fighter pilot, he spoke to the culture’s effect on safety. He cited an article I found very interesting. The article is based on a book by the same name. Try out the article and see if you might not want the book.
New for 2009 NFPA 70E, The Joneses have updated the ESP book and they always invite us to keep up with them. These two think through a safety program and push the envelope with new ideas and documentable help for a beginner or the most experienced. We always have one on the shelf when we help folks build a program.
The Second Edition will be available from Jones & Bartlett Publishers in May 2010 but you can pre-order from them today.
