The NFPA 70E Technical Committee has finished its work on the Second Revision for the 2015 edition of 70E. Many of the actions taken during the First Revision meeting were kept during the Second Revision meeting, but many were modified and wording changes were incorporated due to public comments that were made concerning the First Draft.

This webinar will cover some of the more significant changes that are likely to appear in the 2015 edition of NFPA 70E. These changes won't be final until the balloting for the standard is completed, which should be in July 2014. Some of the committee actions had close votes, but most had a clear majority.

With the impact NFPA 70E has on the electrical work environment and the costs associated with changes to the standard, having an understanding of the likely changes will benefit workers and companies that want to stay at the forefront of electrical safety.
