2015 NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace

Posted by Martin Robinson on 4/24/15 1:30 PM

NFPA 70E® compliance saves lives, reduces liability, and helps avoid unexpected downtime and revenue loss.

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®. Originally developed at OSHA's request, NFPA 70E responds to the latest information about the effects of arc flash, arc blast, and direct current (dc) hazards, and recent developments in electrical design and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Know Your Emissivity

Posted by Martin Robinson on 4/15/15 11:28 AM

What is Emissivity?
The material emissivity (written as “?” or “e”) is the relative power of its surface to emit heat by radiation. Materials are assigned an emissivity value between 0 and 1.0. Emissivity is a measure of a material’s ability to emit infrared energy. The emissivity of a surface is the ratio of the energy radiated from it to that from a blackbody at the same temperature, the same wavelength and under the same viewing conditions.
