What are the latest 2021 CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E Electrical Safety Standards? How do these arc flash & shock standards affect your business?

The latest updates were published for both NFPA 70E and CSA Z462 in their 2021 Editions. Many OH&S professionals, maintenance managers, supervisors and electrical workers still have questions about how the key changes affect their operations.

There is a divergence between CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E 2021 Editions – more than in the past. CSA Z462 specifically recognizes 240VAC single phase as being capable of sustaining an abnormal arcing fault current. NFPA 70E includes an amazing Annex on capacitors and arc flash & shock.

During this video, Terry Becker, P.Eng., CESCP, IEEE Senior Member, identifies and brings clarity to the key changes, updates and divergence of these two standards.
