ARC Flash Studies

Arc Flash Hazard Analysis is a method for identifying potential electrical hazards at each point in an electrical distribution system. Understanding the extent and scope of these hazards is a key component to a comprehensive safety plan to protect employees from serious injury or death that may result from arc flash electrical explosions. An explosion occurs when a fault develops in electrical equipment and discharges heat, pressure, sound, and molten metal in all directions around electrical equipment.

WHY PERFORM ARC FLASH HAZARD ANALYSIS:

●   Meets OSHA requirements to protect employees who work on

        and around electrical equipment

●   Can reduce insurance liability

●   Fulfills periodic electrical evaluations required by law

●   Assists in identifying and reducing electrical problems before they lead

        to unscheduled outages, OSHA safety concerns or an

        Arc Flash event
