Arc Flash Protection and Safe Electrical Work Practices: To The Point
Electric shock and exposure to an arc flash are the two main electrical risks to electrical industrial workers. This video training discusses training and engineering systems to create a safe work environment. The course demonstrates how to establish a limited and restricted approach boundary to prevent an electrical shock to non-electrical workers. Establishing an arc flash boundary is explained. Conducting an incident energy analysis from a potential arc source is detailed. The need to wear arc-rated clothing as protection against the massive energy release of an arc flash is stressed. The video training discusses the four levels of personal protective equipment, which provides an increasing level of protection from an arc flash. Use this video to show employees the safe work practices they must follow to prevent electrical shock or injury from an arc flash.
