NFPA 70E Training | Arc Flash Course

What Is NFPA 70E Certification?

NFPA 70E or the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace is a standard of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to protect workers from electrical hazards. The certification trains employees who work with electrical equipment or systems to recognize the potential dangers and perform a risk assessment before starting work.

Who Should Be NFPA 70E Certified?

NFPA 70E certification is the best way to ensure the safety of employees who work in an environment where electrical hazards are present. While OSHA has its own standards on electrical hazards, it may use NFPA 70E to maintain certain OSHA Requirements.

What Does It Mean to Be Low Voltage Qualified?

OSHA and NFPA 70E require specific training for construction work. Low voltage licenses allow employees to do construction work in the low voltage field. This means working in the burglar alarm, fire alarm, network, security, and other similar industries.

An unrestricted license, also known as a master?s license, allows workers to perform all the functions of the license. These licenses permit the contractor to install low voltage wiring systems that are limited to less than 50 volts. Low voltage licenses also include fiber optics installations.

These licenses are awarded on a state-by-state basis and each has its own requirements. For example, there are no statewide low voltage licensing requirements in Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Meanwhile, Colorado, Indiana, Missouri, and Pennsylvania have no statewide requirements, but certain locations in these states do have specific requirements. It is important for any worker seeking a low voltage qualification to verify their specific locality and the project they are planning.

What Does It Mean to Be High Voltage Qualified?

Much like low voltage qualification, high voltage qualification is for any employee working on wiring systems above 50 volts. Note that the voltage standard is sometimes higher depending on the state that an employee is applying from. A high voltage qualification opens authorized electricians to perform high-level tasks such as:

  • Repairing overhead and underground transformers, voltage regulators, capacitors, and other electrical hardware
  • Managing low and high-level voltage distribution
  • Installing underground electrical circuits and medium voltage overhead
  • Installing duct banks, transformer banks, and low voltage electrical panels
  • Overseeing the maintenance of power distribution systems
  • Inspecting finished electrical work and confirming the system?s functionality

Electrical Safety Training

Almost all OSHA-reported accidents regarding electrocution end in death. Very rarely does a worker involved in an electrical hazard live. Let?s consider the case of David below:

David was part of a team of linemen called out to repair a power line after reports of multiple electrical outages. While alone, David started to repair a 14,400-volt electrical line. After many unsuccessful attempts to reach David by phone and radio, his coworkers found him unresponsive in his lineman?s bucket. It was later found that David was wearing regular leather gloves, rather than the standard insulated rubber gloves. There was a hole in his left glove and a burn mark on his hand. David was rushed to the nearest hospital, doctors pronounced him dead due to electrocution.

David?s death was preventable had he been using the proper equipment. To protect employees from making similar mistakes, safety training and programs must be put in place.

Electrical Safety Program

Electrical safety programs (ESPs) are policies used to train employees to recognize electrical hazards and practice safe work procedures. To be effective, employers must maintain a well-documented ESP. They must also provide it to anyone working around electrical hazards.

An ESP lists all the electrical hazards at each work site and explains the practices employees follow while working. As the hazards and standards of work sites change, the ESP must be updated. This ensures that employees can rely on it as a reference for their safety.

The ESP helps employees practice discipline while working with electrical equipment by implementing safety principles and controls. This can help cut down human errors as these errors are one of the leading causes of workplace injury. Remember, your actions impact your safety. In the section below, we will go over the electrical hazards that can occur.

Electrical Hazards

An electrical hazard is a workplace risk that endangers workers to any of the following: Burns, Electrocution, Shock, Arc Flash/Arc Blast, Fire, and Explosions. BE SAFE by recognizing, avoiding, and protecting against all these electrical hazards (OSHA). These BE SAFE terms are:

  • Burns: A burn is the most common shock-related injury. There are three types of electrical burns: electrical, arc/flash, or thermal contact.
  • Electrocution: Electrocution results when a human is exposed to a lethal amount of electrical energy.
  • Shock: Shock results when the body becomes part of the electrical circuit; current enters the body at one point and leaves at another. It is a reflex response to the passage of electric current through the body.
  • Arc Flash/Blast: An arc flash is the sudden release of electrical energy through the air when a high-voltage gap exists and there is a breakdown between conductors.
  • Fire: Most electrical distribution fires result from problems with fixed wiring such as faulty electrical outlets and old wiring. Problems with cords, plugs, receptacles, and switches also cause electrical fires.
  • Explosions: An explosion can occur when electricity ignites an explosive mixture of material in the air.

Who Needs an Arc Flash Course?

To provide a safe workplace environment, arc flash safety training is a necessity. Anyone who works with electrical equipment should go through the arc flash training courses.

OSHA also identifies many specific job titles associated with higher levels of risk for arc flash exposure. If you have any of these job titles in your facility, you should make sure that they receive this type of training.

What is an Arc Flash?

As stated before, arc flash is a release of electrical energy. This occurs when a high-voltage gap opens up and the energy leaves its expected path between two pieces of equipment. Its name comes from its appearance as a flash of light in the shape of an arch.

An arc flash emits a powerful heat, as high as 36,000 ?F, four times the surface temperature of the sun. Anywhere there is an electrical current an arc flash can occur. An arch flash is caused by any number of reasons. It happens due to lack of training, faulty or insufficient equipment, or even human incompetence.

There are 30,000 arc flash incidents every year, of which 400 resulted in death. As it has such a high fatality rate, there is a desperate need for educating employers and employees alike on how to reduce and prevent arc flashes.

Online Safety Training FAQs

What does each online class cover?

Generally speaking, each course covers the following: 1. Overview of the Course/Introduction to the Equipment 2. Anatomy, including pre-shift inspections 3. Stability Principles 4. Common Hazards/Accident Profiles 5. Safe Operation 6. Rigging and Hand Signals (for crane courses only).

How long is the course?

Trainees go at their own pace, but in general each class (including the exam) takes anywhere from 2 to 2.5 hours. We recommend planning for two or more so you don’t end up rushing through the exam.

Are these courses OSHA-aligned?

All of our Hard Hat Training online courses were built and continue to be updated by our trainers and inspectors using OSHA and ANSI guidelines. But it is important to understand that by OSHA-aligned, we mean it follows to the best of our ability the best practices and safety principles put forth by OSHA. In an online format, it is not possible to cover every code for every situation or hazard across every industry. For this reason, our safety training solutions are tools to further knowledge and help employers train and/or certify their crew. But just because a course or program is OSHA-aligned it does not necessarily mean a company as a whole will be aligned or avoid citation if OSHA were to audit them. There is so much more that goes into collective company alignment with OSHA. For example, workers need to be observed applying in the field what they learned in the classroom. This observation/practical exam should be done by trainers, supervisors, or other designated competent persons. Whether you use our training kits or online courses, we provide guides to help employers do this. Other things that need to be done for ultimate alignment may include but are not limited to: addressing with your crew any gaps in the training or additional hazards or principles specific to your work situation; creating, training on, and enforcing and abiding by written safety programs (also known as plans or procedures); and performing regular inspections and risk assessments.

Are the e-learning classes up-to-date with OSHA standards?

Yes, all of our Hard Hat Training online courses are up-to-date with the latest OSHA standards. As standards change, we make changes to the courses. If you purchase any of our online courses outright, though, it will then be your responsibility to update the course in accordance with any changes to the standard.

Does this course certify or qualify me?

There is a lot of confusion among operators and even companies about what it means to be certified or qualified. Simply put, no, a course does not certify anyone, only an employer does. Or, in other words, because it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure an employee is properly trained, it is also his or her responsibility to say when the employee is “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.” The online courses, like our training kits on CD or USB Drive or even live training via a 3rd party, is just a tool to help them in doing so.

According to OSHA, all operators of heavy equipment must receive operator training. Proper training must include a classroom portion including a written exam, as well as a practical hands-on portion/exam wherein the operator is observed operating the machine. The online course satisfies the required classroom portion of the training. Upon completion of the course and written exam, the safety administrator of the company will receive a checklist which can be used to observe the trainee on the machine. When done successfully, the administrator signs the bottom of the form. At this point, unless further training is required by your employer, you have done everything required by OSHA to be considered by your employer as “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.”

If I pass this class and exam can I take my certification and get a job anywhere?

See “Does this course certify me?” This will depend on your employer. Remember, it is their responsibility to see that you are trained and if there is ever an accident, it is they who will have to prove to OSHA that they trained you sufficiently. Because of this, while some smaller businesses may simply accept your certificate and a copy of your test, more often than not they will require you to go through their own training program. This is their right to do so. It is their further responsibility to train you in accordance with the job, site, equipment, etc. Having said that, we have fielded many calls from potential employers who wanted to learn more about the classroom portion of the training we offered. After hearing our explanation, they accepted the online class as satisfying the classroom portion of the required training and proceeded to do their own practical.

How long is the training good for?

OSHA standards dictate that safety certification needs to be completed at least once every three years. Since no online course can provide “certification,” these courses will combine with your onsite practical training to fulfill OSHA’s requirements for up to three years. Having said that, refresher training is required sooner if an employee changes sites or jobs, is asked to operate a different type of the equipment, is involved in a near-miss or accident, or is observed operating the machine in a dangerous manner.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, upon successful completion of the course and exam, you will have immediate electronic access to your test, a certificate, and a checklist you can use for the practical hands-on portion of the training. Simply print them off.

How many people can use this course? Can I play it for several employees at the same time?

When a course is assigned to an employee, only that employee can take the course. There are many reasons for this, but most importantly the course is designed to train that one employee per OSHA regulations. Also, there is a final written exam at the end that will be linked to the trainee assigned. OSHA requires proof of training and if multiple people were to sit in on that one course, they would not get credit for taking it.

Can I customize the classes?

Your business’s learning portal can be completely customized for your employees including colors and logo. Additionally, if you purchase our courses outright to be used on your own company LMS (learning management system), you also get the right to rebuild them and customize them to meet your own needs. If you have Adobe Captivate, which we use to build our courses, customization is even easier.

Are SCORM/Tin Can options available for use on our own company LMS?

All of our online courses are designed to be SCORM-compatible and can be easily uploaded to your company’s current SCORM-friendly LMS. You can license their use annually or purchase them outright. Licensing or purchasing them outright does not, however, give you the right to resell or distribute our courses to parties other than those whom you are training.

If we buy or license the eLearning courses for use on our own LMS, can you customize them for us?

Yes, we have done and continue to do this for clients. Pricing depends on the extent of customization requested. Please contact us for a quote.

Can I resell these trainings?

We do have resale options available. Contact us regarding resale opportunities.

How do I Look Up My OSHA Alignment Safety Certification?

So, you have already purchased a course from us, taken the online training, and passed the certifaction exam with flying colors. Now what? Most people want to print off a copy of thier OSHA Alignment Safety Certification and keep it for your records. Learn how to do that.

How Does the Training Kit Work?

Have an employee use the kit’s main PowerPoint presentation to instruct the trainees. (any person you, the employer, deems competent may conduct this). Distribute the written exam to each trainee individually. Gather the completed exams and use the included answer key to grade them.

We use a passing grade of 80% as a guideline, but as the employer you are free to adjust it however you like. Administer the practical exam to each trainee. (We suggest correcting any mistakes and having the trainee initial the edit on the practical exam sheet.) Use the included template to print certificates and wallet cards for those who passed. Note the expiration date and be sure to re-train and re-certify before then.
