Electrical Safety-Related Work Practices, 3E

National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, (NJATC), Palmer Hickman

A must for electrical safety professionals, instructors, electrical workers, and contractors!

The NJATC’s authoritative electrical experts train top-quality electrical workers across the country. This Third Edition text covers electrical safety requirements and safety-related work practices of OSHA and the National Fire Protection Association electrical safety in the workplace code, NFPA 70E®.

Specific topics include electrical safety culture, hazard awareness, lockout/tagout, justification and assessment of working in hazardous conditions, calculation of short-circuit currents, arc flash hazard analysis methods, PPE, equipment maintenance, and design considerations.

Chapters explore calculations required to comply with NFPA 70E, and techniques that can be applied to significantly reduce or eliminate electrical hazards. Each chapter includes one real-life case study and recommendations for how these incidents could have been avoided.

A must for electrical safety professionals, instructors, electrical workers, and contractors.

Updated to reflect the 2012 Edition of NFPA 70E.

New and exciting chapter features enhance learning and synthesis of the material. These include:
