Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

This ARC Flash Electrical Safety training course will emphasise the importance of arc flash electrical safety with reference to shock hazards, burns, incident energies, limits of approach, personal protective equipment and arc flash mitigations.

An arc flash may happen when conductive objects are placed near exposed conductors. Dropped tools may also cause sparks that may lead to arc blasts. Arc flash safety measures also mention the importance of inspecting old electrical tools with bad parts or worn out wires. It is very harmful because of the intense degrees of temperature it produces. When the electrical current jumps, it may also cause extremely bright flashes of light that can temporarily or permanently damage eyesight.

Employers of electrical workers are already required to conduct arc flash analysis in order to check how much thermal energy can be produced within the workplace. The results of their analysis will determine the particular amount of heat-resistant clothing that they should provide their workers. It also sets the boundaries between workers and potential sources of harmful arc flashes. This course includes the causes of arc flash incidents and calculation of incident energies.  Participants will be introduced to the various methods of arc fault protection.

This training course will feature:

  • Causes of arc flash and its effects
  • Arc flash protection boundary
  • Incident energy calculations
  • Warning labels
  • Safety requirements

What are the Goals?

What Are The Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the various causes of arc flash
  • Determine incident energy
  • Explain arc flash protection boundary
  • Analyse the common methods of arc flash protection
  • Interpret manual calculation of incident energy and determination of personal protective equipment categories

How will this Training Course be Presented?

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This course will utilise a variety of proven adult training techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes presentation and discussion of case studies (with appropriate solutions), latest videos, technologies, and various commercial fault current analysis software. Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss with the Presenter specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions. Specific goals of each participant will be discussed to ensure that their needs are fulfilled whenever practicable.
