Prepare for the electrical challenges of tomorrow, today, with NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC), 2020 edition.
The world never stops changing, so it's crucial to keep learning how to keep it safe. Incorporated by reference in all 50 states and used across the globe, NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), is the benchmark standard for electrical safety in residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
NFPA 31 is a standard for the safe, efficient design and installation of heating appliances that use a liquid fuel, typically No. 2 heating oil, but also lighter fuels, such as kerosene and diesel fuel, and heavier fuels, such as No. 4 fuel oil. NFPA 31 applies to the installation of these systems in residential, commercial, and industrial occupancies.

Everyone who works on or near electrical equipment, or who supervises someone who does, needs the life-saving guidance in the NFPA 70E Handbook. Many workers are unaware of how using NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace reduces their risks to electrical hazards. This Standard is not only important, it helps companies comply with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. Revised to reflect the latest edition of NFPA 70E, the new NFPA 70E Handbook offers explanations and advice to help you interpret the Standard and make the right decisions every day on the job.
Keep the workplace safe from electrical hazards using the 2018 edition of NFPA 70E. In a fraction of a second, an electrical incident can claim lives and cause permanently disabling injuries. In fact, hundreds of deaths and thousands of burn injuries occur each year due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast -- and most could be prevented through compliance with NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. The Standard continues to evolve to address risk assessment and introduces human factors, such as human error, as part of that assessment. Annex Q, Human Performance and Workplace Electrical Safety, is included to provide guidance. NFPA 70E emphasizes the need to use the hierarchy of risk controls, by moving it from an informational note into the text of the Standard. NFPA 70E now explicitly states that the first priority must be the elimination of the hazard.
