Servi-Tek Hawaii Attends NFPA 70E Electrical Safety Training Event
Servi-Tek Engineering recently held an NFPA 70E electrical training session for its Hawaii branch at the Waterfront Plaza Hotel in Honolulu on Wednesday, February 27th. Hosted in partnership with SI Testing, the 2-hour Lunch & Learn event was explicitly developed to promote arc flash safety and demonstrate workplace practices that minimize exposure to electrical hazards.
Servi-Tek, an innovator in facilities management solutions and energy conservation strategies, offers continuous, relevant industry training that not only optimizes operational efficiencies but also prioritizes safety for both its employees and building tenants. The company already includes Electrical Safety, Arc Flash Awareness, and Lock Out/Tag Out instruction as part of its robust standard annual training format throughout all of its locations. However, Servi-Tek Engineering recognized the importance of partnering with SI Testing to further educate its staff on the requirements and responsibilities when working with or near electricity.
As an established leader in the electrical systems repair, infrared testing, and arc flash vertical, SI Testing specializes in preventative maintenance and electrical testing education for companies in multiple industries. The firm’s NFPA 70 safety training covers a comprehensive range of vital topics and learning objectives such as:
- Awareness instruction to differentiate between electric shock and arc flash
- Evaluating potential hazard and risk levels across multiple functions, jobs, and tasks
- Pairing individual worker qualifications with applicable approach boundary criteria
- Performing activities based on appropriate energy levels, circuit conditions, and overall voltage
- Recognizing proper protective equipment to be worn
Kurt Lester, Servi-Tek’s co-founder, discussed the many benefits offered from SI Testing’s customized training program. “At Servi-Tek, as a certified-green provider, we take our energy stewardship responsibilities very seriously. We know firsthand that any type of electrical interaction significantly increases the risk of an employee injury,” he said. “SI Testing’s informative, in-person NFPA 70E Training session does more than satisfy a workplace safety requirement; the program delivered mission-critical insight to our team on how to mitigate the threat of harm and implement the very highest standards and best practices when working in and around electrical distribution equipment and devices for optimal peace of mind with every assigned project.”
