Graphic Products website offers arc flash guidance
Arc flash is a potentially deadly electrical hazard that sends thousands of workers to the hospital each year. Since the risk was first identified in the 1980s, arc flash safety has become a leading concern in the electrical industry. New studies and safety devices appear regularly, and debate continues about the most effective prevention techniques. Mitigating arc flash hazards is not easy, and involves intricate calculations, a variety of safety devices, and constant vigilance. Frequently-changing regulations and industry standards further confuse the issue, making it difficult for employers to understand what they should do.
The Arc Flash Information Resource Center helps the situation by providing thoroughly-researched, up-to-date information about all aspects of arc flash safety in a single place.
Some of the topics covered include creating an electrically safe work condition, conducting an arc flash study, selecting personal protective equipment, OSHA requirements, IEEE 1584 calculations, and arc flash warning labels. Numerous links provide companies with easy access to arc flash consultants, relevant publications, and safety device vendors. A frequently-updated blog ensures that the latest information about arc flash is easily available.
There are a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about arc flash, says Steve Hudgik, Internet Marketing Manager for Graphic Products, We hope that the Arc Flash Information Resource Center will be a source of information that helps improve safetyand save lives.
