TRC-2018 Learning Zone 42:32
by Tim Rohrer, Exiscan

NFPA 70E and CSA Z462 are (arguably) the two most influential electrical safety standards in the world. The changes contained in the recent 2018 revisions of these harmonized standards have a direct impact on Electrical Preventive Maintenance (EPdM) practices, and likely have a direct impact on your facility(s). Likewise, the standard used throughout the world for arc flash hazard calculation (IEEE 1584) is in the final stages of revisions based on recent research on the subject. This presentation will highlight some of the changes that carry the biggest impact for Electrical Preventive Maintenance, and will answer the questions:

  • What changes to electrical safety standards should I be aware of?
  • What impact do those changes have on the EPdM work practices and design principles at my facility(s)?
  • What steps can I take upon returning to improve the worker safety and regulatory compliance at my facility(s)?
