DP's Ernie Bonham Holds Arc Flash Awareness Course for Kitchell's Team


Our very own Ernie Bonham, presented a course on Arc Flash Awareness to Kitchell employees this past week. The purpose of the seminar was to update staff on changes made to the 2015 edition of the NFPA 70E. Topics included the definition of a qualified worker, safe approach boundaries, PPE categories, and the selecting of proper protective gear for energized work.

Ernie Bonham oversees Field Operations and Safety Management at DP Electric and is a long-time instructor for the Arizona Builder's Alliance. He has over two decades of experience teaching classes on electrical craftsmanship and safety at Gateway Community College, is an NCCER instructor, an NEC code instructor, and an overall advocate for continued education in the world of construction. 

With safety at the forefront of our culture, we are thrilled to have a member of staff with the experience and expertise to inspire a safer industry. Undoubtedly, Ernie is an invaluable part of our team here at DP Electric.
