Keeping your team working safely includes a thorough understanding of and adherence to NFPA 70E, OSHA’s standard for electrical safety in the workplace. NFPA 70E helps companies and employees avoid workplace injuries and fatalities due to shock, electrocution, electric arc flash, and arc blast.
That’s where MKD Electric comes in. Our Arc Flash Safety Training courses are geared towards NFPA 70E compliance for your company’s electrical safety program. Space is limited to 20 participants. Register early to guarantee your space.
Classes are held every 2nd Wednesday of each month. Call for more information.
I learned more about the safety of working with electrical power in this class than I ever learned.

AFTERNOON SESSION (1-3:30 PM)
Students will apply safe work practices to:
- Identify correct safe work distances for shock and arc flash protection
- Select appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for each energized work situation
- Determine need for and select appropriate voltage rated tools and test equipment when working on or near energized electrical equipment
- Performance Evaluations and Observations
While students who attend both sessions will receive practical arc flash training, as well as a certificate of completion, it is the employer’s responsibility to observe their employees and deem them qualified to work on or near energized electrical equipment. We encourage managers to attend with a group to observe and qualify their employees during the performance evaluation portion of the training.
