What is SAS ?
Hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries occur each year due to shock, electrocution and arc flash. Almost all of these tragic events are preventable. NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace sets the guidelines and principles to follow to ensure worker and workplace safety.

NFPA 70E is the guideline for compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Subpart K. OSHA takes electrical safety seriously with nearly 100 standards that are deemed necessary for the practical safeguarding of employees in their workplaces. Citations in the Electrical-General Requirements category (Standard 1910.303) ranks in OSHA’s top 10 most cited violations, according to the National Safety Council. OSHA publishes a top 10 most violated standards list every year and 3 of the top 10 violations are electrical.
