NFPA 70E (2012) - Module 5: Use and Care of Protective Equipment and Other 70E Requirements

Sample Certificate


This self-paced online training course covers the additional requirements for PPE. Employees must be provided with and use PPE where electrical hazards are present. The PPE must be selected for both the parts of the body that are exposed to an electrical hazard, dependent upon the particular hazards that are present, and the work to be performed.

Upon completion you should be able to:

  • Distinguish the major types of electrical hazards and the PPE that is selected to reduce injuries from these
  • Identify the specific type of PPE used to protect each body part
  • Recognize the fabrics used in fire-resistant PPE
  • Describe the other protective equipment that may be used in an electrically hazardous task
  • Outline the other requirements, such as safety-related maintenance and testing of equipment, covered by NFPA 70E

Who Will Benefit

Anyone whose job involves designing, reviewing, evaluating or installing fire protection systems, including: designers, installers, engineers, electrical contractors, technicians, project managers, fire marshals, and architects.

Course Summary

  • Most of this module was devoted to discussing the types, function, characteristics, testing, care, and maintenance of personal protective equipment (PPE). Most of these requirements were located in Chapter 1, primarily in 130.7. Some of the critical issues that we covered were:
    • PPE must be provided and designed to protect every part of the body
    • PPE must be constructed of appropriate materials.?
    • PPE must be inspected and maintained to ensure its ability to perform its intended function. Article 250 covers some of these requirements.?
    • PPE and other protective equipment must comply with applicable standards.?
    • Means must be provided to alert others when hazards are present. Both qualified and unqualified persons have to be warned if they are exposed to a hazard.
  • We also discussed the contents and types of rules included in Chapters 2 and 3 of NFPA 70E and found that:
    • Chapter 2 provides maintenance requirements for electrical installations and equipment and PPE
    • Chapter 3 provides work practices and some installation requirements for special equipment?
