New Requirements in Arc Flash and Arc Blast Safety
How safe is your work environment? Injuries from arc blast and arc flash have changed the way everyday tasks are done while working around electricity. Industry standards, in particular, NFPA 70E – 2009 National Electrical Code, detail the requirements necessary to mitigate risks to help keep workers safe from electrical hazards in the work place. In 2009, NFPA published a major update to this electrical safety code. Understanding this revised standard is critical to implementing safe-related work practices, maintenance, special equipment requirements and installation – key elements to ensure worker safety in your facility.
