IEC Georgia Offers ARC Flash/NFPA 70E Safety Training Throughout Georgia

 

SafetyGearIEC Georgia delivered ARC Flash/ NFPA 70E training classes in Columbus on April 10th and in Savannah on April 17th.  Both classes were a success.  Each class was filled with electrical workers and contractors who understand the importance of safety.  The class is instructed by Darryl Fitch, IEC’s Safety Specialist who, not only trains your employees, but conducts onsite safety consultations for IEC members.  This is one of IEC’s newest benefits to assist our members in operating in safe environments. 

 

The class provides attendees with 4 hours of CEUs and a summary of the 2015 OSHA and NFPA 70E revisions.  It comes at a perfect time, as CEUs are due by June 30th and safety on worksites continues to be a major issue.  Accidents, injuries, and deaths can add challenges in running an effective business.  You want your employees safe, and your bottom line secure as well.  These classes prepare you and your workers to recognize and avoid unnecessary accidents.

 

Upcoming classes are scheduled in the following areas;

 

June 5th @ Hagemeyer, Macon, Georgia

 

June 12th Augusta, Georgia

 

June 19th Northwest Georgia
