Presenters are responsible for the revision and drafting of the standard. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the new 70E, straight from NFPA 70E Technical Committee members. “Nowhere else will you get four members of the NFPA 70E Technical Committee together in the same place to help further your understanding of safe work practices.” - Mike Johnston, NECA Executive Director of Standards and Safety.
