    Legal Requirements for Arc Flash Safety

    Legal Requirements For Arc Flash Safety

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets a number of standards in relation to arc flash safety and requires employers to protect their employees from arc flash hazards through the requirements of NFPA 70E. Here are some of the basic legal requirements for arc flash safety as outlines through NFPA 70E:

    • Employers must perform a PPE hazard assessment to determine necessary PPE
    • Employees must be trained in safety-related work procedures that pertain to their specific job. For more information, check out our Online Arc Flash Training
    • Electrical protective equipment that has potential for electrical hazards must be inspected by a qualified person to ensure is it appropriate for employee and workplace safety
    • Employees are required to wear protective gear, such as goggles, when working with the danger of electrical explosions
    • Insulated tools or handling equipment must be used by employees when working with conductors or circuit parts
    • Employees are not allowed to wear clothing that could increase the extent of injury when exposed to the hazards of flames or electrical areas.

    The best way to ensure that your workplace is operating under the necessary guidelines, call a qualified inspector to visit your workplace. Arc flash assessments not only ensure that your employees are operating systems safely, but also that your workplace is not in danger of receiving any legal citations.
