NFPA 70E Changes May Impact PPE Best Practices
When did your facility become NFPA 70E compliant? It may be time to review your facility’s arc flash risk assessment, equipment labeling and PPE best practices utilizing sustain-ably manufactured PPE. Changes to the electrical distribution system and the addition of new equipment will likely affect the assessment results, the accuracy of the information on equipment labels and the resultant FR/AR PPE choices. Per NFPA 70E, the assessment needs to be reviewed for accuracy at least every 5 years or when changes occur to the electrical distribution system.
Whether you use the incident energy analysis method or the PPE category method for FR/AR PPE selection, the latest edition of 70E provides the most up-to-date information so you can best protect workers from the arc flash hazard. Discover the role of human performance on arc flash incidents, learn how to improve the incident energy analysis with updated IEEE 1584 calculations and gain clarity on the 70E risk assessment and PPE selection tables. This presentation highlights enhanced arc flash risk assessments, best practice selection of sustainably made PPE and improved worker performance and protection.
