Battling Human Error: How NFPA 70E Changes and PPE Program Best Practices Mitigate Arc Flash and Combustible Dust Hazards

Thursday, May 30, 2019, at 11 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET 
Attendees qualify for a certificate of completion.

Addressing human error in the risk assessment procedure have shed new light on PPE program "best practices" for both electric arc and combustible dust/flash fire hazards. Error precursors, such as complacency – a safety killer, which can lead to a “Normalization of Deviance” company culture must be countered with human performance tools. Human performance tools appear in Annex Q of NFPA 70E!  Learn how human performance tools and “best practice” PPE programs help reduce the likelihood of incident occurrence and severity of burn injury from electric arc and combustible dust /flash fire hazards and improve the company’s safety culture.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review of key PPE changes in NFPA 70E
  • Review of the new NFPA 70E risk assessment procedure
  • Review of arc flash PPE program best practices
  • Determine which “best practice” PPE program more effectively reduces risk of catastrophic burn injury.
