Arc Flash Assessment
What is an arc flash?
An arc flash occurs when there is a short circuit, either phase-to-phase or phase-to-ground. Arc flash events are usually caused by human error, resulting from dropped tools or other accidental contact with energized parts. But they can also result from the build-up of conductive material inside an electrical enclosure, aging wire insulation or even vermin infestation. Verifiable Results provides arc flash assessment and training for your business.
We’ve created the following PowerPoint executive summary that shows the dangers of an arc flash event. Please make sure the volume on your computer is turned on. The presentation takes about 3 minutes:
Can an arc flash happen in your business?
An arc flash can occur any time electricity is in use. Arc flash incidents can be avoided by providing your employees with appropriate training and the proper safety equipment.
Why do you need an arc flash assessment?
Employee safety as well as the National Fire Protection Association Guidelines (NFPA 70E) and OSHA requirements mandate the need for this important service. The law states that prior to allowing a worker to perform a task on energized equipment an arc flash hazard analysis needs to be performed.
Additionally, electrical inspectors are now enforcing the new labeling requirement published in the 2002 National Electrical Code (NEC 110.16) that states a warning label must be placed on electrical equipment that may remain energized during maintenance or repair.
As modifications to your electrical distribution system are made, it is also necessary to update the arc flash assessment.
