Arc Flash Risk Assessment
Arc Flash occurs when an electric current leaves its safely intended path and travels from one conductor to another. The result of this uncontrolled high voltage is extremely violent and may cause serious injury or even death to employees.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 70E 2018) Arc Flash is “a source of possible injury or damage to health associated with the release of energy caused by an electrical arc.
Arc Flash Risk Assessment looks at how much risk a qualified worker is exposed to in order to ensure their safety. We use this to limit the damage of arc flash events on personnel and equipment.
Employees should be retrained when there are changes to the current procedures. This may include a change in job assignments, change in machines, change in energy control procedures, inspections reveal deviations from energy control procedure, or when the employer believes there are inadequacies in the employees knowledge. In the latter case, training is needed to reestablish proficiency or introduce new control methods.
