Are you a Qualified Electrical Worker according to NFPA 70E?

This webinar discusses what makes a person electrically qualified.

It’s ironic that when it comes to electrical work, everyone with access to a screwdriver and a piece of electrical tape assumes that may qualify them enough to perform the job. Historical data and accident reports suggest that most electrical accidents are primarily caused by the workers' failure to identify the nature of the hazards associated with the job and further not having proper training and tools to perform the job. Some workers assume that having theoretical knowledge would suffice to perform the job, while others think hands-on experience is all that matters.

This webinar will discuss what makes a worker “electrically” qualified and further explain that qualification is not a one-time thing that makes a person electrically qualified through the tenure of his/her service on an infinite number of systems and equipment. The webinar will also discuss worker qualifications, training requirements, retraining requirements, and documentation needs per NFPA 70E standards.

  • What is Minimally Qualified vs. What is Safe
  • NFPA 70E definitions for qualified and unqualified workers
