NECA Releases Guide to NFPA 70E Employer (Contractor) Responsibilities

Jun 03, 2014

New Guide Provides 70E Compliance Requirements and Training Materials for Member-Contractors

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) has released the latest in a series of NFPA 70E supporting publications, the NECA Guide to NFPA 70E Employer (Contractor) Responsibilities (Index# 5126-14) to help member-contractors and industry professionals understand and apply the principles found in NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.

This guide forms a basis for a contractor’s compliance with NFPA 70E detailing planning and documentation requirements to effectively communicate risks to customers as well as to employees. The guide also includes a letter template that can be used to express the contractor’s commitment for following these requirements to employees and clients.

Additionally as with the other guides, a companion CD will also be available that includes the text for the guide and a power point presentation that can be used for training personnel and customers. This CD also includes copies of the annex documentation from NFPA 70E for easy reference and use such as the electrical energized work permit.

“The guide will form a basis for the contractor’s 70E compliance with NFPA 70E. It details planning and documentation requirements a contractor must comply with to effectively communicate the risks to customers as well as employees.” - Wes Wheeler, Director Safety, NECA
