Hugh Hoagland and Zarheer Jooma will be 2 NSC speakers at this year’s Congress.
They, along with two other presenters, will discuss how NFPA 70E and other standards were implemented at an old factory that had no previous Electrical Safety Program.
Their hour-long case study presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, October 24, at 1 p.m.
The Future of Electrical Safety: Beyond OSHA and NFPA 70E Compliance
Hugh will also speak during one of the Congress’ Learning Labs. His session titled The Future of Electrical Safety: Beyond OSHA and NFPA 70E Compliance, will review electrical safety concepts, from new equipment to risk assessment techniques. His talk will point to key standards and standards concepts that are not normally fully implemented. You’ll learn about some cutting-edge technologies that could change electrical safety and personnel protection.

A Little More Description of the case study presentation
A large multinational organization acquired an old factory with no previous electrical safety programs or electrical safety management systems. In this session, you’ll learn how the recently transferred safety specialist went about implementing complex concepts from the NFPA 70E – Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, OSHA 1910 Subpart S (Electrical), NFPA 70 National Electrical Code (NEC), and NFPA 70B Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance. You’ll leave with information to kick-start an electrical safety program or benchmark your current programs, regardless of organization size.
