Seminars target improving plant safety and reducing arc flash hazards
Ferraz Shawmut announces its new schedule of electrical safety seminars. The seminars are designed to address the needs of plant supervisors, safety managers, electrical engineers, electricians, and electrical system designers and specifiers.
Arc Flash NFPA 70E Safety will be offered on Sept. 15 at the Pittsburgh Marriott North in Cranberry Township, Pa. This seminar will present new content not covered previously and report on recent code revisions in the 2009 edition of the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. It will cover overcurrents, arc energy, arc flash hazards, codes and standards, fuse performance and mitigating arc flash hazards. Attendees will learn how to avoid electrical and arc flash accidents, choose the right PPE to protect their employees and how to update their safety program to meet the 2009 edition of the NFPA 70E.
For improved access and convenience, the Overcurrent Protection Basics for Designs and Specifiers is being offered in three different locations: Aug. 27 at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Neb.; Sept. 23 at the Technology Transfer Center in Shreveport, La.; and on Oct. 28 at the Holiday Inn Express in Rosemont, Ill. This half-day seminar will provide an up-to-date understanding of the key overcurrent protection issues. It will cover current-limiting fuses (basics, curves, types and the UL 248 standard for low voltage fuses), arc flash considerations in an industrial/commercial environment and short circuit current rating and selective coordination requirements in the NEC 2008. A certificate of completion (four instruction hours) will be provided for those needing PDH credits.
