ARC FLASH SAFETY

COURSE OVERVIEW

Arc Flash hazards management is an essential skill for all electrical workers.
Arc flashes are extremely hazardous to anyone working on or near the source of an electrical assembly. Some of the consequences from exposure can include: thermal burns, major limb and spinal injuries, respiratory damage, hearing damage, loss of eyesight, and, in some cases, death.
The objective of this course is to familiarise participants with the dangers of Arc Flash hazards while working around energised electrical equipment, how to identify and mitigate those hazards and ensure workers remain current with changes to applicable electrical codes, technology and safe work practices.
