|Burn Up the Myth: Operating Breakers |
|What does it take to be “qualified“?|
Our trainers are often asked the question, “Will my electricians be Qualified if they attend e-Hazard’s Low Voltage Qualified course?”
Answer: They may become qualified if they attend the course. According to OSHA and NFPA 70E® they need the following to be considered “qualified”.
- They need to demonstrate they have the skills to do the work they are to do.
- They need to demonstrate they have the knowledge to do the work they are to do.
- They need to have received safety training to recognize and avoid the hazards involved.

We are very pleased to announce the addition of Cricket Hater as our newest team member. Cricket will be working with our Marketing team as a copywriter. Cricket has a Bachelor of Arts in Social Services from Asbury University.

Does your company have a documented preventative maintenance program for electrical devices?
- Does it follow NFPA 70B?
- Does it follow NETA-MTS 2011?
- Do you test, clean, and calibrate main breakers at least every 3-5 years?
