ESS NFPA70E training for qualified electrical workers
The adequacy of employee Electrical Safety Training may also become an issue in contested cases where the affirmative defense of unpreventable employee misconduct is raised. Under case law well-established in the commission and the courts, an employer may successfully defend against an otherwise valid citation by demonstrating that all feasible steps were taken to avoid the occurrence of the hazard.
Training in the proper performance of a job is time and money well spent. The employer should regard it as an investment rather than an expense.
With proper training and PPE these arc flash injuries may have been avoided.聽https://www.osha.gov/news/newsreleases/region9/06062019
