Simple as 1-2-3 Arc Flash Compliance

Posted on July 31, 2012 11:13 am

The very basics of complying with OSHA are that the plant needs to know the hazards and protect the workers from these hazards. When it comes to arc flash, it is not obvious the exact size of the hazard without performing a hazard assessment.

So the 1-2-3 basics are:

  1. Determine the hazard levels (This is done by performing an arc flash study)
  2. Warn the workers of the hazard (This is done by training and installing warning labels on all electrical panels)
  3. Protect the workers (This is done by purchasing and using arc flash Personal Protective Equipment [PPE]. This is also done by having a written policy with procedures which include requirements for filling out an energized work permit whenever an energized panel needs to be opened)

 

Stated another way, the basic components of implementing NFPA 70E (Click on the links for more information)

  • ·         Written Policies and Procedures for Electrical Safety Program
  • ·         Perform an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
  • ·         Install Warning Labels
  • ·         Provide and Require PPE
  • ·         Require an Energized Work Permit (Control Method)
  • ·         Train Employees

 

I would also recommend that you get a copy of NFPA 70E to learn more. PowerSource can help with meeting all of these requirements.
