Arc Flash Recertification Training


What Does OSHA Say About Arc Flash?
According to OSHA 1910.132(d) The employer is responsible to assess the hazards in the work place, select, have, and use the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and document the assessment. The use of NFPA 70E and other related industry consensus standards has been used to demonstrate whether an employer acted reasonably when there is a possible OSHA enforcement action taken. So although NFPA 70E is not directly part of OSHA standards, it can be used as evidence of whether an employer acted reasonably in complying with OSHA standards and addressing “recognized hazards”.
Please note: NFPA 70e Standard Section 110.2 (D) (3) states that retraining in safety related work practices and applicable changes to this standard shall be performed at intervals not to exceed three years.
