Electrical Safety Training System (ESTS) Electrical Worker – USA, NFPA 70E Arc Flash & Shock
Developed for workers that perform energized electrical work. The course curriculum is based on the 2015 Edition of NFPA 70E. The overall course content was developed using industry accepted best practice standards as the basis for the training in support of meeting OSHA regulatory due diligence for arc flash and shock. The ESTS provides training on arc flash and shock for low and high voltage electrical equipment.
ESTS Electrical Worker training is focused on the practical application of NFPA 70E within the workplace and providing documentation tools in support of the Employer’s overall Occupational Health & Safety Management System and an Electrical Safety Program. Employers are required to have an updated Electrical Safety Program that incorporates the new requirements from NFPA 70E-2015 for workers to receive the most benefit from this course.
The ESTS Electrical Worker course is broken down into five sections for ease of use. Workers should self-pace themselves based on their understanding of the subject matter. All workers are encouraged to stop and start their course by saving their progress before exiting. At any time during the course workers can ask questions to an Instructor and follow along using a comprehensive Student Workbook as a training aid.
Students who score 80% or greater on the Final Assessment earn their training certificate and can apply for 0.6 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s). Final assessment questions are fully randomized so Workers never have the same exact questions.
