IEC now includes electricians qualified for performing tasks requiring low voltage arc flash work practices, and high voltage related work practices. The training, an e-Hazard licensed program recognized by major companies (www.e-hazard.com ) and based on NFPA 70E and OSHA 1910 requirements, is an important achievement for each of our employees.
IEC is also now an MSHA certified contractor.
These accolades underscore the commitment IEC makes to ensure our customers receive the highest quality in trained electrical professionals for their maintenance and construction needs.
NFPA 70E is regarded as the standard for electrical safety in the workplace. Many companies are struggling to implement the engineering controls, awareness training, administrative controls, and PPE requirements to avoid costly OSHA fines, citations and penalties resulting from the failure to provide a safe workplace environment for its employees, especially those engaged in electrical construction and maintenance. An arc flash is a dangerous instantaneous electrical event that can create temperatures four times hotter than the surface of the sun and cause horrific injuries and death to all exposed personnel, and costly damage to equipment and production.
