Seminar Overview

The foremost goal of this two-day Arc Flash Electrical Safety course is to keep workers safe while working on or around electrically energized equipment. The course is structured to help companies fulfill requirements set forth in OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S Electrical and NFPA 70E® “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace,” which requires this type of instructor-led training for anyone working with electrically energized equipment. Overall, this program is designed to reduce liability for the employer while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees; it is a key component of any electrical training program.

The first two days of this three-day course are identical to our traditional Arc Flash Electrical Safety course. For this version, a third day is added so that students can demonstrate what they have learned by participating in hands-on classroom exercises and taking the ATMT® Electrical Safety Certification exam.  Participating in a third day to hone and practice these NFPA 70E electrical safety skills helps students to meet OSHA training obligations (under OSHA CFR 1910.331-335 and the NFPA 70E standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®).

This 3-day seminar is just $1650.
