NFPA 70e Electrical Safety

This the NFPA's consensus standard for workplace electrical safety. Originally developed at OSHA's request, NFPA 70E® helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast, and assists in complying with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. The NFPA 70E gets updated every three years. NFPA states that hundreds of deaths and thousands of burn injuries occur each year due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast - and most could be prevented through compliance with NFPA 70E®.
