safety_in_numbers_2017Today the IEEE Standards Association released the 2017 National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®). Every five years, NESC users come together to review and update the code, so that it stays a relevant and authoritative guide for ensuring the continued practical safeguarding of persons and utility facilities during the installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply and communication facilities.

The infographic below highlights some of the changes to the 2017 edition of the NESC.

The 2017 NESC also introduces new, helpful tools so that users can more easily access and utilize NESC content including the 2017 NESC Handbook, Premier Edition. Later this fall, IEEE will also be offering a series of new educational courses based on the NESC 2017 Edition, as well as introducing a mobile app for enhanced access to NESC content in the field.
