The National Fire Protection Association known as the NFPA created the 70E standard. NFPA 70E is the standard for electrical safety in the workplace. It is a guide for establishing safe practices for working with or near the electrical equipment. Before NFPA 70E, the National Electrical Code created standards for installing electrical equipment but did not discuss working with that equipment. The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration known as OSHA also has standards and booklets on electrical safety that are based on NFPA 70 and NFPA 70E. NFPA 70E is updated every three years because the types of equipment and known best practices can change over time. This module will provide an introduction to NFPA 70E and will summarize some of its important safety guidelines.
