Arc Flash Analysis: Ensuring Safety First
Learn how to mitigate hazardous risks to protect your people & facilities
Arc flash hazards in conjunction with electrical hazards pose an everyday risk for personnel who work with dangerous electrical equipment in industrial, commercial and municipal settings. The impacts of these risks vary from near misses to fatalities, and drive ever-present safety concerns for the people who work in these environments.
Arc Flash Analysis is a critical tool to ensure safety through the identification of arc flash and electrical hazards in your facility. Arc Flash Analysis contributes to the overall performance, reliability through coordination analysis, security and safety of a facility’s electrical system, and most importantly its personnel.
A fully executed Arc Flash Analysis identifies:
- where these hazards are present within the electrical system,
- what personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn for protection, and
- potential solutions to mitigate and reduce these hazards.
In this webinar you will learn:
- What are arc flash and electrical hazards and their causes, as well as how they affect personnel and equipment, and what makes them so dangerous.
- What is involved in performing an Arc Flash Analysis, its process, components, and deliverables.
- How an Arc Flash Analysis with System Coordination Analysis, in addition to helping protect your personnel and equipment, indirectly improves overall system reliability and reduces downtime.
