If you’re a Facility Operations Manager who’s looking to meet arc flash risk assessment requirements and become OSHA compliant with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E standards, it’s imperative you partner with a distributor who lives and breathes safety.
Safety is paramount at any facility, especially for those who work with or around electricity. That’s why it’s important to work with a distributor partner that can provide the right training, system analysis and risk-reduction recommendations that get your people home safely at the end of the day.
