Arc Flash For Non-Electricians
Arc Flash provides non-technical employees with a basic knowledge of what arc flash is, what its hazards are, and what steps they can take to prevent accidents and injuries involving it. The program also describes procedures that workers should use to protect themselves and their coworkers from electric shock. Thousands of people are injured and killed every year by electricity's two main hazards, arc flash and shock. Arc flash is a violent release of electrical energy that causes severe injuries and fatalities through extreme heat and blast effects. Shock can cause burns, internal injuries, cardiac arrest even death.
