Electrical accidents, such as arc flashes occur daily; however there are ways companies and individuals can reduce the occurrence of these accidents and protect everybody concerned from the physical, financial, and statutory consequences. In this session we will discuss how the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) regulation 70E provides a reference for facilities to meet the requirements of electrical workplace safety while regulation 70B outlines the best practices for setting up and maintaining and Electrical Preventive Maintenance (EPM) program. Hear about experience-based results and case studies that demonstrate the value realized from maintenance, reliability and asset management improvement initiatives.
