Thompson Automation and Specialty Services was pleased to join the South Dakota Safety Council October 4, 2017, at the Sioux Falls Convention Center as they celebrated their 25th Annual South Dakota Safety & Health Conference! This exciting conference brought together the largest group of safety professionals to keep current on a broad range of issues, get valuable training, and network with colleagues and industry experts.
If you were there you could have had the chance to hear a presentation on ARC Flash OSHA/NFPA 70E requirements by Jeff Bennett, Thompson Automation, and Specialty Services Corporate Safety Director. Supported by OSHA, the current NFPA 70E changes bring a new level of regulations that employers must understand when it comes to Arc Flash, PPE and training requirements. This training program covered some of the important changes in the 2015 NFPA 70E regulations and gave attendees a better understanding of those requirements and what employers must do to protect their employees in the case of an arc flash event.
“Whatever your organization’s size or industry, if you’re responsible for workplace safety and health, this was a must-attend event in South Dakota”, expressed Jason Glover, General Manager of Thompson Automation and Specialty Services. “If you could not make it and are interested in more information on Arc Flash safety and your requirements under OSHA and the NFPA contact us and he can help you out. It is critically important that you understand these changing and complex regulations.”
