Electrical Safety Training

Inherent dangers exist with the operation, maintenance, and repair of electrical equipment. Electrical hazards such as arc flash and arc blast can result in serious injury or death to electrical workers. With proper safety training, your employees are prepared to protect themselves, their co-workers, and your critical infrastructure.

Ensuring the safety of your workers and meeting the challenges of the latest arc flash safety requirements is a difficult task without assistance from qualified resources. Vertiv’s experts have extensive experience with recommended practices and industry standards such as the National Fire Protection Association’s Electrical Safety in the Workplace (NFPA 70E). Having delivered hundreds of on- and off-site training courses annually, you can trust that we will provide the education your team needs to become “qualified” electrical workers in accordance with 70E requirements.
