Industrial technology manufacturing company Littelfuse Inc. invites plant engineers, facility managers and maintenance and safety professionals to join its electrical safety webcast on Thursday, September 22, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. Central Time.
Shock protection in the workplace can come in many forms but is most effective when implemented by design. This presentation will focus on a specific engineering safety control that has saved thousands of lives and significantly reduced the number of electrocutions in the workplace (and at home).
The Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) technology has not changed much since it was first introduced in the 1968 National Electric Code (NEC). Yet, since that time, the applications requiring this technology continue to increase in nearly every iteration of the code. In the 2017 edition, a significant change occurred which has since affected the design principles for specific applications and created a demand for new and improved technology from GFCI manufacturers.
Attendees will learn:
- How code changes have affected applications
- How GFCI technology is changing to address code standards
- Expected 2023 NEC code changes and the impact on applications
The webcast is free and attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions in a live Q&A session after the presentation. In addition, this webcast is eligible for one Professional Development Hour credit, and will be available on-demand.
