OSHA wants workers in Pennsylvania to be as safe as possible when they need to perform various tasks. This is why the government agency provides a series of regulations and guidelines concerning many different occupations and industries. One of these is NFPA 70E, which is a proactive and preventative standard that pertains to electrical safety in the workplace.
When properly implemented and adhered to, the NFPA 70E standard has the potential to reduce workplace injuries that could affect productivity along with an employer's reputation and ability to attract quality workers. One common reason for issues with workplace safety is a lack of understanding about what's needed to perform tasks safely. However, NFPA 70E could be used by both employers and individual contractors to organize their approach to work.
