NFPA 70E 2024 Updates and Related Standards
The NFPA 70E-2024 standard was released in both digital and hardcopy formats earlier than most previous revisions. While the updates were important, they were not considered a major standard change from previous years. This allows for a shorter discussion of the changes and more time to focus on their impact on the industry. This webinar will cover electrical hazards for end-users who are new to this field but will also address a few advanced topics from the 70E-2024 updates to cater to more advanced end-users.
Some of the recent changes have a significant influence on electrical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). NFPA 70E-2024 references other standards that are typically not discussed. This webinar will explore these standards and guide the industry on methods to implement this PPE effectively. Finally, the webinar concludes with a discussion of direct current (DC) from both an NFPA 70E and OSHA perspective.
