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
