> Do you perform electrical work in multi-use buildings or install 1000A or larger services at 480V? Are you aware that the NEC requires engineering level assessment & testing when planning this work?
> Did you know NFPA 70E states a facility (host employer) is required to make you and your employees aware of any hazards related to their electrical systems BEFORE you begin to install, modify, maintain, or service equipment?
> Did you know your employees are required to be informed and trained and MUST FOLLOW all safety protocols established by the facility where the work is being performed?
> Do your service agreements require work on energized equipment? Are you aware of what it means to be "qualified" to work on energized equipment?
Here is an excellent opportunity to gain the in-depth knowledge of NEC code requirements and NFPA 70E safety protocols that will improve the accuracy of your project estimates, increase your credibility as a contractor and increase you customer's confidence when your electricians are on the job site.
