Hundreds of thousands of Americans working on or near energized electrical equipment do not currently have protection from this deadly hazard, despite standards which have been in place for over 20 years.

What is the Partnership for Electrical Safety's Mission?

We believe that the PPE requirements of NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace provide the appropriate best practices to ensure worker safety, and should be broadly adopted for substantially all live or potentially live electrical work in the United States.

Why is this issue so important now?


We want to ensure the safety of all workers..

The PPE requirements of NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace have been in place for over 20 years, yet there are still currently over 600,000 workers without proper protection. Through education, we believe best practices under the standard will be adopted, and together, we can lower the number of unprotected workers in America.
