NEW – This course is now available via our interactive Live Online Training format. Live Online Training course length and content may vary from our in-classroom content. Click Here to ask us about the differences.
NEW for 2021 – Electrical Safety has been completely updated not just for the changes to the standard this cycle, we have taken student interactions to the next level – introducing both student laptops for simulations and new instructor demonstration equipment to combine the discussion of content and application of material in an in-class interactive format. It provides a “hands-on” experience where attendees perform the same safety skills they must demonstrate in the field. This is what NTT Electrical Safety Training is all about.
The NFPA 70E® Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace provides the prescriptive methods for OSHA compliance for electrical safe work. NTT Training provides the interpretation of the standard, hands-on instructor demonstration and student practice for implementing the standard. Laptop, tabletop, and hands-on exercises will have students work with their own copy the NFPA 70E and NTT’s App for Electrical Safety, helping to ensure they understand these requirements.

Training Program Description
This intensive 2-day course is different whether you attend in-classroom or remotely Live Online. For both, bring your own PPE for use and inspection during our intensive and interactive Hands-on exercises during which you will also use NTT’s Electrical Safety App to learn and practice the practical steps for safely working in the field.
Module 1: ELECTRICAL HAZARDS
- Trainees will receive a brief history of electrical safety, the most recent safety statistics and, identify compliance requirements.
- The students will be given an overview of the hazards of electricity and its effect on the human body. Shock and arc flash.
Module 2: ARTICLES 90 & 100: INTRODUCTION TO 2021 EDITION OF NFPA 70E
- Introduction to the NFPA 70E text
- Overview of OSHA and NFPA 70E and how the standard is organized
- Review of the purpose of NFPA 70E, to protect all employees from the hazards arising from the use of electricity in the workplace.
- Article 100, important definitions. Students will review key definitions with the instructor and how they will be returning to Article 100 to look up terms when they run into them throughout the course.
Module 3: ARTICLE 110: GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY RELATED WORK PRACTICES
- Trainees will be taken through the eleven sections of Article 110 for a look at the requirements for energize work, normal operating conditions, an electrical safety program. Safe work requires qualified persons to perform a risk assessment, read and interpret labels, establish boundaries and follow other safe work practices identified in NFPA 70E training requirements.
- The students will learn to use these steps as they interact with the NTT Risk Assessment APP. to develop a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) for typical electrical task. This JSA will be used throughout the remainder of the class for hands-on activities.
Module 4: ARTICLE 120: ESTABLISHING AN ELECTRICALLY SAFE WORK CONDITION
- OSHA and 70E requirements in Article 120 are first presented. Trainees then perform an electrical Lockout/Tagout on electrical equipment from their assign task. The exercise applies information from the JSA developed previously, and PPE selection based on previous exercises.
- Skills are developed as the 8-step method is used to establish and verify a circuit is electrically safe. The correct process for installing personal protective grounds are covered
- The instructor demonstrates proper body positioning and techniques for typical switching operations
Module 5: ARTICLE 130: WORK INVOLVING ELECTRICAL HAZARDS
- NFPA 70E requires electrical equipment to meet five requirements prior to Normal Operation. After discussing those requirements, trainees will perform a visual inspection of the NTT electrical equipment for installation and maintenance issues. Examples of good and bad installations are discussed. Trainees will use the table in the NFPA 70E Standard to determine the likelihood of the occurrence of an arc flash. Learn how to use a risk matrix to determine severity of risk.
- The students will learn shock risk assessment, and arc flash risk assessment using both the incident energy method and PPE category methods.
Module 6: ARTICLE 130.7: ELECTRICAL PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
- In addition to discussing characteristics and maintenance of various types of PPE, trainees will use the checklist in their text/APP. to inspect PPE. Trainees are encouraged to bring their own PPE to class for inspection. The instructor will demonstrate proper glove inspections, with donning and doffing techniques of assorted PPE.
Module 7: CONDUCTING AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE DRILL
- While the risk assessment and proper safe work practices are all designed to keep workers safe, unintentional injuries do occur. NFPA 70E requires training in emergency response, methods of release, CPR and AEDs. In this exercise trainees must develop an emergency response plan. Trainees then implement the plan following the scenario given by the instructor. The class concludes with a video exercise to summarize the electrical safe work practices learned.
