Electrical arc flash and shock hazards are extremely dangerous and are a fairly frequent occurrences. These hazards put the lives and health of electrical workers at significant risk. Statistics indicate that 5 to 10 arc flash accidents are reported daily, which most involve a fatality or a serious injury to the employee. The costs associated with these accidents can run into the millions. The National Fire and Protection Association and OSHA require facilities to comply with the NFPA 70E regulations. Our training programs on Ach Flash Safety will guide facilities and employees through all of the requirements mandated by OSHA and the NFPA. This program will provide information to train employees in arc flash safety, meet OSHA requirements of the new NFPA 70E, and help reduce the hazards associated with electrical arc flash and blasts.
Topics include: introduction to understanding and reducing arc flash hazards, arc flash protection, arc flash personal protective equipment, requirements, required signs and labeling, training, documentation, work permits, and more.
OSHA's Position On Arc Flash Safety Training
Shock hazards, along with electrical arc flashes are not only extremely dangerous, but fairly common as well. The reason for this lies with the fact that just about every industry relies on electric power at some point. Because of the nature of electricity, a fatality can easily occur due to heart stoppage. According to OSHA and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 143 construction worker fatalities occurred annually, due to electrocution, from 1992 through 2003! Electrical workers suffered fatalities from electrocution in about 34% of their fatality statistics (which numbered 586). These numbers were followed by site laborers, carpenters and non-electrical worker and roofer supervisors. In addition to employee injury and fatalities, the cost of these incidents can run into the millions. As a result, OSHA and the National Fire Protection Association require that workplaces comply with NFPA 70E regulations. On this website, we’re pleased to offer our customers comprehensive training programs that deal with Arc Flash Safety and other electrical hazards that will guide facilities and employees when it comes to mandatory regulation compliance.
