Summit Releases DVD Program on 2012 Updates for NFPA 70E, NFPA 70E: Control the Charge

Article-Summit Releases DVD Program on 2012 Updates for NFPA 70E, NFPA 70E: Control the Charge

Summit’s new DVD program, NFPA 70E: Control the Charge, is in compliance with the updated NFPA 70E standards for 2012 that responds to the rising frequency of reported arc flash accidents, and the potential for serious injury or death and makes it easier to ensure an electrically safe working area and comply with OSHA. The revised 2012 NFPA 70E standards details new information about the effects of arc flash, arc blast, and direct current (dc) hazards, and recent developments in electrical design and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and make it absolutely critical to be trained properly for working on or around electrical equipment. 

Summit’s new DVD program entitled NFPA 70E: Control the Charge will not only help you avoid an OSHA citation, but more importantly, following the best work practices detailed inside will protect you and your workers from statistics like these: Arc flash accidents can heat to air to temperatures as high as 35,000ºF and can produce a blast as high as 2000 lb/sq ft, sending more than 2000 people to burn centers every year.  Increase safety and ensure compliance throughout your workplace with Summit’s new program that covers:

* Electrical hazards
* Safety planning
* De-energizing equipment
* Working hot

Summit’s program is filmed in multiple settings including construction sites, building maintenance, and other areas that may present an electrical hazard. By successfully learning about the newly updated NFPA 70E standards, electrical workers can avoid electrical hazards and help achieve a very important goal – a safer workplace for everyone.
