How Does An ARC Flash Happen?
ARC Flash is a danger whenever energized equipment is being worked on, but there are certain conditions that make ARC Flash more likely. these conditions include:
- Dropped tools or other sources of sparks near energized equipment
- Gaps in insulating materials which expose conducting surfaces
- Corroded or improperly installed or maintained equipment
Employers must protect their employees from the Two Electrical Hazards in the workplace:
OSHA – A hazard assessment and PPE selection is a requirement by OSHA.
- The employer shall assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of personal protective equipment. (PPE) – OSHA 29 CFR 1910/132(d)(1)
- OSHA specifically addresses Standards for Work Practices and references NFPA 70E, this includes “Qualified Electrical Person” training. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.333
- Requires the use of protective equipment when working where a potential electrical hazard exists. OSHA 20 CFR 1910.335
NFPA 70E – Provides the standards and guidance in implementing an Electrical Safety Hazard Assessment and Safe Work Practices including:
- Arc-Flash Hazard Analysis
- Safe Work Practices
- Qualified Electrical Person Training
- PPE Requirements
- Equipment Warning Labels
