NFPA 70E is updated for 2015 – and the tables have changed

NFPA updated its standard 70E for 2015 and made significant changes to its tables of Limited Approach Boundaries and the like.  In addition, they deleted the term “Prohibited Approach Boundary” and changed Hazard Assessment to Risk Assessment.  While these changes are minor in technical terms, they can have a significant impact on electrical workers who are exposed to electrical risks and may need to reference the 70E standard.

Risk and Safety Managers should review the new standard, update their policies and hold training for electrical workers in their organizations to ensure that everyone affected by the changes has an understanding of the impact.
