The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) codes are used as a basis for the safety regulations by government agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). New OSHA and NFPA 70E codes require stricter arc flash hazard safety regulations. The 70E (“Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace”) calls for more safety-related work practices, safety-related maintenance requirements, and requirements for special equipment.
Shawver & Son, Inc. is one of the few electrical contractors in Oklahoma that performs arc flash hazard analyses and the associated training. We can educate you and your workers about arc flash safety requirements and procedures.
