Ugly’s Electrical Safety and NFPA 70E 2012

Ensure Your Jobs Comply with Important Safety Standards with Ugly’s Electrical Safety and NFPA 70E®!UGLY's Dog

Ugly’s Electrical Safety and NFPA 70E® is the first pocket-sized summary of NFPA 70E 2012 with comparisons to current OSHA regulations and the 2011 National Electrical Code®.

Designed for electricians, engineers, contractors, designers, maintenance workers, instructors, and students, this invaluable resource provides fast access to the most commonly referenced sections of the latest NFPA 70E and related safety standards.

In simple, straightforward language, Ugly’s covers the safety requirements of electrical systems operating at or below 600 volts, including: Six-Step Procedures for Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition, Meter Safety, Safe Electrical Work Practices, PPE, Configurations, Electrical Hazards, and First Aid.

Important updates in the 2012 NFPA 70E include:
  • Arc-Rated (AR) vs. Flame-Resistant (FR)
  • Documentation of electrical safety programs and training
  • Tables have been added for direct-current systems
  • New requirements for equipment labeling
  • Employees shall be retrained at intervals not to exceed 3 years
