Stallcup’s Illustrated Code Changes Workbook based on 2015 NFPA 70E


As in the past, the changes that have been made to the newest edition of the NFPA 70E have been numerous and, as always, prompted a need for a publication that not only designates these changes in a well-designed format, but provides a detailed and visually accepted presentation for the easy comprehension of the reader.

Now, once again, the 2015 NFPA 70E contains numerous changes. Learning what these changes are and the reasoning behind them should not be the only reason for a user to learn them.

As in all Stallcup publications, the correlation and interactivity of various codes and standards is considered mandatory in the electrical industry. Therefore, it is imperative that there be a Code by which other codes and standards can reference as the Code of standard practice. The NFPA 70E is recognized as this Code and therefore, for installation and maintenance of electrical systems, as well as for safety issues, keeping oneself aware of changes not only in the NFPA 70E, but in the electrical industry as a whole, is a must.

Stallcup’s 70E Electrical Safety in the Workplace (2015)


This book was developed to make electrical safety easy to understand and enforce. The rules are taken from NFPA 70E®, Electrical Safety In The Workplace, and correlated with OSHA 29 CFR 1910, Subpart S; OSHA 29 CFR 1926, Subpart K; ANSI C2, National Electrical Safety Code, (NESC); and NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC).

Many designers, installers and inspectors have trouble understanding, interpreting, and applying the electrical requirements listed in the above standards and codes. These requirements have been assembled and correlated in such a manner as to be easily understood. To help expedite the time involved in nding the rules and applying the requirements for general industry, sections in each standard have been listed for fast reference.

Designers must design and lay out electrical systems to meet the provisions of the OSHA standards. Installers are required to install and wire electrical systems to comply with the NEC and provide safety for the employee working in his or her workplace. Inspectors must inspect the electrical system to ensure that it not only complies with the NEC but also provides the necessary safety requirements of OSHA and NFPA 70E.

To be inline with NFPA 70E, OSHA Electrical Regulations Simpli ed is divided into four chapters:

  • Chapter 1: Safety-Related Work Practices
  • Chapter 2: Safety-Related Maintenance Requirements
  • Chapter 3: Safety Requirements for Special Equipment
  • Chapter 4: Installation Safety Requirements

The Standard NFPA 70E was developed by NFPA at the request of OSHA. OSHA needed this standard to help them keep as current as possible with the requirements in the NEC that pertain to safety-related work practices. OSHA later implemented the arc- ash requirements. The OSHA standards are rarely changed and therefore lag behind the NEC as well as other codes and standards.

Throughout the book you will nd examples and illustrations as well as the highlighted text Standards to review, which interface OSHA, NFPA 70E, and the NEC, where applicable.

NFPA and the authors hope that the material in this book will be a useful aid in making the jobs easier for those persons who are responsible for complying with these rules and regulations.

Stallcup’s Off-Shore Electrical Requirements (2014)


The economics of modern offshore facilities have caused a signi cant increase in the complexity of marine platform electrical systems. The corresponding increase in the use of electric power and electrical and electronic controls demand a better understanding of electrical principles in order to promote human safety and aid in the prevention of re or explosion.

Many items of electrical equipment represent a potential ignition source if exposed to a fuel source; however, properly designed and maintained electrical equipment can be safely applied even where hazardous gases or vapors are present. On offshore platforms, particular emphasis must be placed on electrical installations because of the presence of hydrocarbons, the close con nes, and the adverse environmental conditions. Because of safety considerations and governmental rules and regulations, it is essential that future installations comply with applicable codes and regulations and that the integrity of existing systems be maintained.

Prior to 1971 there literally were no electrical regulations to follow (except for safety of life at sea requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard, i.e. NAVAID lights, and abandon platform alarms) for installations that were in fact outside of state boundaries and located in federal waters.

In 1971, the United States Department of the Interior through the United States Geological Survey Conservation Division (USGS) made compliance with the National Electrical Code mandatory in offshore federal waters of the Outer Continental Shelf (thus the term USGS OCS Orders).

These regulations also require that facilities located on the Outer Continental Shelf of the United States be electrically classi ed in accordance with the American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice RP500 titled, “Classi cation of Areas for Electrical Installations at Drilling Rigs and Production Facilities on land and on Marine Fixed and Mobile Platforms.”

This book consolidates the guidelines established by the API Standards, as well as the National Electrical Code and NFPA Standards, and actual eld operating experience into one document of requirements. It has been prepared to acquaint electrical and operating personnel with the requirements for offshore electrical equipment, emphasizing installations in those areas considered hazardous from a re and explosion standpoint, and to establish guidelines for those who select and install electrical equipment so that this can be accomplished with a minimum of technical assistance. The information in this book is addressed to those individuals who are interested in designing and installing in such systems.

Note that in the some of the codes and standards that regulate offshore production, the word “shall” is used to represent a mandatory requirement. However, even though the author references those same codes and standards, the information in this book is intended to guide the user as to what is acceptable and what is not. Therefore, the word “should” or “must” will be used to represent an accepted practice by the industry.

Stallcup’s Onshore Electrical Requirements (2014)


In the last few decades, the causes of electrical phenomena have been accurately determined, and due to this, electricity is used to perform many useful functions. Today, electricity is so common that its use is taken for granted. Without it there would be no refrigerators, electric irons, electric lights, radios, televisions, or any other modern electrical equipment. Without electricity, life as modern man and woman know it could not exist.

Stallcup’s OSHA Electrical Construction Regulations Simplified (2014)


The OSHA Standards present necessary and constant considerations by an employer for their implementation. Stallcup has authored a series of publications to make these regulations easier to understand, by correlating these rules and regulations with other codes and Standards, such as the NEC, NFPA 70E, and the NESC. And by illustrating their application, the adherence by employers and workers is promoted.

This book is an excerpt from OSHA – Stallcup’s® Construction Regulations and represents only the portion that covers the electrical standards for construction.

Stallcup’s OSHA Electrical Maintenance Regulations Simplified (2014)


This book was developed to make OSHA rules easy to understand and enforce. The rules are taken from NFPA 70E®, Electrical Safety In The Workplace, and correlated with OSHA 29 CFR 1910, Subpart S; OSHA 29 CFR 1926, Subpart K; ANSI C2, National Electrical Safety Code, (NESC); and NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC).

Many designers, installers and inspectors have trouble understanding, interpreting, and applying the electrical requirements listed in the above standards and codes. These requirements have been assembled and correlated in such a manner as to be easily understood. To help expedite
the time involved in finding the rules and applying the requirements for general industry, sections in each standard have been listed for fast reference.

Designers must design and lay out electrical systems to meet the provisions of the OSHA standards. Installers are required to install and wire electrical systems to comply with the NEC and provide safety for the employee working in his or her workplace. Inspectors must inspect the electrical system to ensure that it not only complies with the NEC but also provides the necessary safety requirements of OSHA and NFPA 70E.

The Standard NFPA 70E was developed by NFPA at the request of OSHA.

Stallcup’s OSHA High-Voltage Electrical Regulations Simplified (2014)


The rules and regulations in Part I of OSHA High-Voltage Electrical Regulations Simplified, addresses the work practices to be used during the operation and maintenance of electric power generation, transmission, and distribution installations.

A comprehensive approach is discussed pertaining to control of the hazards involved for the safety of personnel working near or on such hazards.

To protect personnel from the unique hazards encountered while working on high-voltage systems and associated equipment, the appropriate electrical protective equipment is recommended to ensure such protection.

The rules and regulations outlined (when applied) will significantly reduce the number of fatalities and injuries involving electrical contact, flash burns, and thermal burns as well as other accidents which otherwise would be uncontrolled.

Employer and employees must learn the requirements of Part I which contains Subpart R of OSHA 1910.269. They must implement such rules to provide safety when performing maintenance on high-voltage electrical installations.

Stallcup’s 70B Electrical Equipment Maintenance (2013)


NFPA 70B, Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance, was developed because of the high number of electrical accidents that have been attributed to the lack of maintenance on various types of electrical equipment found in commercial and industrial locations. Proper maintenance of electrical equipment, when not performed regularly, will not only cause a possible high monetary loss of equipment and property, but can present a danger to personnel in the form of a serious injury or a possible fatality.

As with all codes and standards, implementation and correlation of preventive maintenance techniques can represent a challenge to the personnel charged with maintaining electrical systems and equipment in the commercial or industrial environment. In Stallcup s Electrical Equipment Maintenance Simplified, these recommended procedures and general guidelines are discussed and presented in a formatted arrangement so that application of the standard can be achieved.

The following topics are specifically addressed:

(1) Designing Techniques of Product Standards (where applicable)
(2) Installation per NEC and NESC Requirements
(3) Maintenance Recommendations per NFPA 70B
(4) Use of Instruction Specifications per Manufacturer (where applicable)

The authors would like to point out that the most important Chapters and Sections of NFPA 70B that cover requirements that are essential to the safe operation of electrical equipment have been selected for this book. If these recommended procedures are performed by maintenance personnel, electrical systems and equipment can be relied upon to operate and perform for a long period of time
