Arc flash incidents can happen despite care taken to avert them. In such circumstances, it is always better if the incident energy is low and staff are ready for the worst by implementing adequate PPE. Arc flash incidents can be cut down by use of adequate equipment, proper preventive care, planning and coordination of operation, as well as skill improvement and real experience. Also crucial is the mental and physical circumstances of the staff such that the dropping of equipment and tools, accidental touching, etc., are averted.

This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand how to limit arc flash exposure. The course covers preventive operation, limiting fault currents and adjustments of protection settings and personal protective equipment.
