What is Arc Flash?
Arc Flash occurs when the phase conductors are shorted and ionization of the air occurs. When this happens, the arc faults create large amounts of heat that can severely burn skin, set clothing on fire, and cause hearing loss. At this time, molten metal is blasted from the fault location in a radial direction damaging equipment and resulting potential injury or death
Why Should I perform an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis?
Arc Flash Hazard Studies are performed to educate & determine the risk to personnel, warn them of the hazards, and to instruct them as to what kind of personal protective equipment that they must wear. OSHA regulations apply to every worker that may approach or be exposed to energized electrical equipment. Failure for an employer to conform and follow OSHA and NEC requirements can lead to employee injuries/death, fines, penalties, and expensive lawsuits.
What is an Arc Flash Warning Label?
The 2008 NEC Section 110.16 states that electrical equipment likely to require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized shall be field marked to warn qualified persons the potential of electric arc flash hazards. FPN No. 1: NFPA 70E-2009, Standard for Electrical Safety in the workplace, provides assistance in determining severity of potential exposure, planning safe work practices, and selecting personal protective equipment.
