Preventing the Next Electrical Incident at Your Company: A Conversation with Arc Flash Survivor Josh Brozen

On April 7, 2009, Jason Brozen’s life changed forever. While performing electrical maintenance at a hotel in Kansas, an arc flash occurred, leaving Jason with third-degree burns covering his face and arms. He spent a week in a coma and two weeks in an intensive care unit. His employer also suffered significant losses.

Incidents like what happened to Jason are, unfortunately, not isolated. Since 2011, the United States has averaged more than 2,400 electrical injuries and 150 electrical fatalities per year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

On Tuesday, May 14, during this year’s National Electrical Safety Month, join Jason and NFPA Senior Electrical Content Specialist Corey Hannahs for an eye-opening webinar that will detail the critical importance of electrical safety training and fostering a culture of electrical safety whenever and wherever you work. Attendees will receive indispensable information to help them combat complacency, leverage NFPA® codes and standards, and engage upper management in establishing a comprehensive electrical safety program (ESP).

We will also discuss what is known as the electrical cycle of safety—a concept that illustrates the importance of utilizing the most up-to-date versions of NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®, and NFPA 70B, Standard for Electrical Equipment Maintenance, in building a strong foundation of electrical safety at your company.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to gain insights for protecting yourself or your workers and preventing the next electrical incident from occurring. Register today for this free learning opportunity!
