Arc Flash

Purpose

Depending on your needs, we will evaluate and confirm the rating of your components such as cables and transformers to ensure that they are adequately rated for load current. The load flow study will:

  • Flash hazard boundary
  • Amount of incident energy
  • Shock hazard
  • Limited approach
  • Restricted approach
  • Prohibited approach
  • Adjust protection settings to reduce the PPE requirements
  • Increase facility reliability, equipment protection, and personnel safety
  • Determine the level of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be worn
  • Investigate alternative options (modern engineering controls) to ensure adequate safety on site, and evaluate cost effective arc flash hazard control measures
  • Provide the required PPE labels throughout your site
