In Arc Flash Hazards and NFPA™ 70E, you'll learn ...
- The causes and effects of arc flashes
- The 2012 NFPA 70E requirements concerning arc flash hazards
- How to implement an arc flash program
- The appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for arc flash hazards
- Arc flash labeling requirements and methodology
An arc flash is a powerful event with the potential to cause severe injury and even death. On average, one trained electrical worker dies every day due to arc flash hazard, and there are five to ten arc flash incidents a day in the United States resulting in medical costs of $1.5 million per incident. If for no other reason than personal safety, engineers must stay abreast of arc flash requirements.
This live, interactive webinar serves as an introduction to, review of, and update on arc flash standards and requirements, with emphasis on the 2012 revisions to NFPA 70E. It is designed for electrical engineers, industrial engineers, maintenance engineers, safety engineers, safety managers, facilities managers, project managers, electricians, principals of smaller facilities, and other technical personnel who wish to enhance their knowledge about arc flash hazards and NFPA 70E.
We will begin with an introduction to the general arc flash phenomenon, graphically illustrating the effects of an arc flash event through dramatic photographs of actual incidents. You will learn the science behind the arc flash phenomenon, as well as the potential causes for arc flashes. We will identify and discuss pertinent components of the electrical power distribution, such as fuses and breakers, and their role in the initiation and mitigation of arc flash events.
You will also learn the value of arc flash hazard analysis and a recommended approach to take in the absence of a formal arc flash study. Additionally, we will look at the four arc flash boundaries, arc flash labeling requirements and methodology, and arc flash terminology and definitions. And we will identify the PPE prescribed for the five arc flash hazard classes (0, 1, 2, 3, and 4).
This is a compelling webinar designed to keep you informed about an amazingly powerful phenomenon.
