Driving Electrical Safety in Your Plant
Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT

One (1) RCEP / ACEC Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

The proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is a critical component of any electrical safety program, and yet proper PPE use often is overlooked, diminished, or simply disregarded by electrical workers in manufacturing. Plant Engineering will present a Webcast on December 5th at 1 p.m. CT that will discuss the importance of PPE to mitigate arc flash dangers and other electrical safety issues.
