Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Revised Electrical Safety in the Workplace (NFPA-70E) Video & Materials

April 30, 2021

Each week, MCAA will highlight one or more of the educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership. This week, we focus on MCAA’s newly revised Electrical Safety in the Workplace (NFPA 70E) Video and its accompanying materials. These resources teach service techs to protect themselves from electrical shock and arc flash hazards when working on equipment pushing 480 volts or less. Topics covered include how to work safely near energized electrical conductors or circuit parts.

The video and materials have been revised to ensure they are consistent with NFPA 70E-2021, the current version of the National Fire Protection Association’s Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. The standard is revised every three years.

Two key revisions are:

  1. Changes to the footwear requirement for arc flash protection
  2. Safe work practices around energized capacitors, including proper de-energization requirements

The video comes with a pocket guide that highlights key training points, a training documentation sheet, a 20-question multiple choice test, and a test answer key.
