Whether you have a mature electrical safety program or just beginning to put a program in place, this webinar will provide tips for improvement and achieving results in preventing mishaps in electrical energy, control and communications systems critical to your business. For over three decades, injuries and fatalities from electrical energy have steadily declined in the United States.  Even so, contact with electrical energy remains the 7th leading cause of workplace fatality, one in 13 lost time injuries from electrical contact is fatal and approximately 2000 workers are hospitalized for non-fatal electrical injuries annually. This webinar will discuss the business case for engaging management and workers to support your program, review anticipated changes in the 2018 revision to NFPA70E, and explore the danger of an illusion of control that could undermine your electrical safety program.

Learning Objectives:
1.    Understand how to better prevent electrical accidents within your plant.
2.    Be able to quantify the business case for safe electrical practices
3.    Be able to communicate that business case to C-Suite executives as well as plant line personnel.
4.    Learn about the anticipated changes in NFPA 70E, for 2018.
5.    Understand the “illusion of control” and how if affects your electrical safety program.
