How OSHA regulation NFPA 70E could minimize electrical injuries

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.

Workplace electrical injuries reduced by going beyond NEC

Electrical injuries are on the rise in the workforce. Between 2016 and 2017, there was a 35 percent increase in electrical injuries. An estimated 54 percent of these injuries occurred in construction workers. Electrical hazards, such as arc flashes, can not only cause fatalities, but they are also responsible for severe injuries that can cost over $1 million to treat. Preventing electrical injuries by exceeding minimal code requirements is the best way to prevent them from occurring in Pennsylvania and across the United States.
