Speaker: Larry Lind, Southwest Energy Systems

Topic: "Revisions to the 2015 NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace"

The 2015 edition of NFPA 70E reflects a major shift in how stake holders evaluate electrical risk. New definitions were added to understand Hazard(s), Hazardous, Risk, and Risk Assessment. Shock, Arc Flash and Electrical Hazard Analysis’ were changed to reflect each action as a Risk Assessment. These changes bring the 70E consistent with other NFPA documents. This topic will help attendees understand these changes.
