The webinar will explore proposed changes in NFPA 70E, NFPA 2112, ANSI/ISEA 107 and a new arc flash protection standard for multi-material protector gloves. These proposed changes could change PPE purchasing specifications and buying patterns for garments, gloves and other PPE affecting electrical workers and petrochemical workers.
