New Book Focuses On Electrical Saftey In The Workplace
A new book dedicated to electrical safety in the workplace has been released.
James R. White’s “Electrical Safety: A Practical Guide to OSHA and NFPA 70E” was published in early October, discussing the interaction between two closely related documents sharing a common history, OSHA Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices regulations and NFPA 70E.
A comprehensive overview of electrical safety in the workplace, White’s book helps readers become more familiar with the 2012 edition of NFPA 70E as he draws on many years of field experience with real-life incidents, outlining lessons learned and common errors witnessed.
Among the topics covered are electrical hazards and basic electrical safety concepts, electrical safety programs, multi-employer worksites, approach boundaries for shock and arc flash hazards, performing a hazard/rick analysis, training for qualified and unqualified workers, portable electrical tools and flexible cords, establishing an electrically safe work condition, choosing and inspecting personal protective equipment and guidelines for common electrical tasks.
The book is written as a course text with an instructor’s guide. A workbook is also available.
