OSHA Arc Flash Compliance

DEFINING ARC FLASH COMPLIANCE

CONNECTING OSHA & NFPA 70E COMPLIANCE GOALS

STANDARDS FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE

Companies nationally face a similar goal with interpreting what they should have in place to account for OSHA’s 1910 Sub Part S 300 Series, along with NFPA 70E regarding programs to address arc flash regulations and general safety programs.

Faith Technologies’ Electrical Risk Management programs and formats complement both OSHA directives along with NFPA 70E references, and are aimed to help your employees remain productive within their job requirements. OSHA utilizes NFPA 70E for electrical safety regulation, and can issue citations if the code is not fulfilled.

Our team identifies core program compliance needs while helping employers implement “employee driven” concepts that can easily be followed.

All of our programs and supporting materials are driven on one key value, and that is your employees represent a company’s most valuable assets and we have a shared commitment to help them remain safe.

HIGHLIGHTS OF NFPA 70E 2018

Key changes to the code include:

  • Significant changes in Article 110 regarding expectations for employees to conduct risk assessments and job planning/briefing
  • Key exceptions that have been inserted within the code that can in some cases be taken with different interpretations regarding article 120.5 and “Establishing an Electrically Safe Condition”
  • Article 130 continues to define two methods for determining arc flash programs, however the 2018 code has introduced some code article topics that Faith Technologies feels is important to review such as “Likelihood of Occurrence” so each employer has a good interpretation on how to manage these code comments.

It is crucial for employers to have a complete Electrical Risk Management program in place to address these code changes. Learn how Faith Technologies’ full-risk audits can help build a stronger safety culture within your organization.

THE VALUE OF SOUND ARC FLASH STUDIES & COMPLETE LOTO PROGRAM INTEGRATION

ELECTRICAL COMPLIANCE IS A COMMON EMPLOYER GOAL, BUT HOW DO WE DETERMINE WHAT “COMPLIANCE” IS?

There’s a lot to keep up with in today’s work environment. Employers have state or federal OSHA and NFPA 70E arc flash guidelines to adhere to that get updated every three years, as well as insurance and risk carrier recommendations that address infrared testing, switchgear testing and maintenance, and NFPA 70E assessments.

Our proven Electrical Risk Management program helps you create and maintain that safe, productive work environment – which makes focusing on your core business needs much easier. Faith Technologies’ advantages also include: a more responsive and qualified workforce, significantly fewer costs associated with premature equipment failures, consistent productivity, less liability risk and, of course, a comprehensive safety program that meets OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements.
