June 27, 2013 from American Institute of Steel Construction
(Chicago, IL) – The American Institute of Steel Construction is offering a new webinar series focused on safety, which kicks off on July 25 with a free presentation on arc flash safety. Steel fabricators and erectors will learn about arc flash and other electrical safety hazards, the requirements in NFPA 70E and suggested safe working practices around electrical hazards. To register for this free webinar, go to www.aisc.org/arcflashsafety.
“Whether in the fabrication shop or the field, energized equipment is a hazard that can result in severe injuries if workers are exposed to accidental electric arcs as equipment is being serviced,” said Tom Schlafly, AISC director of safety. “It’s important for structural steel fabricators and erectors to understand these hazards and know how to apply current safety practices in this area.”
The 75-minute webinar will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:
9:30 a.m. PDT
