Electrical dangers such as shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast will always be present on the job, but proper training and safety strategies can minimize the likelihood of injuries and fatalities. The course consists of 2 days classroom training, and an optional 3rd day which includes a “hands on” session that requires the participants to demonstrate that they are able to identify the hazard and properly select the appropriate PPE for the given task.
Arc flashes release energy hotter than the surface of the sun, spray molten metal and create sound blasts as loud as a gun, resulting in burn injuries, hospitalizations, and fatalities. This one-day workshop will provide attendees with the experience, tools, and education that will help them conduct arc flash assessments that electric utilities are required to perform to protect their field workers from the dangers of flash.
This breakout session is designed to ensure that qualified workers covered under 1910.269 and 1926. Subpart V are familiar with the safety-related work practices, safety procedures, and other personnel safety requirements in these standards that pertain to their jobs. Topics include PPE requirements, arc flash calculation and protection, fall protection, grounding, and more.
