The Dangers of Arc Flash

arc flash, electrical services, arc flash dangers An arc flash hazard is a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc. An arc flash is an explosion that can cause severe burns, injuries or death depending on the severity. These incidents typically occur in applications above 120 volts and can take place at any time especially when electrical equipment is being inspected or serviced.

An arc flash hazard exists when a person is working on or near exposed electric conductors or circuit parts that have not been de-energized and placed in a safe work condition such as lockout tagout.

Due to the lack of thorough and accurate labeling of electrical equipment an arc flash hazard study should be performed. To be in compliance with OSHA & NFPA 70E Standard, arc flash labels should be created and placed on all pieces of equipment analyzed as part of an Electrical Safety Program.

Contact ecs to request an Arc Flash quote. We will determine the arc flash boundary and provide arc flash labels as well as a short circuit equipment evaluation and short circuit device evaluation to help you evaluate your electrical system. An ecs arc flash risk assessment includes the following elements:

  • Provide an up-front explanation of the requirements of NFPA 70E 2018
  • Survey existing or new electrical systems to collect data necessary to perform a short-circuit analysis, protective device coordination study, and arc flash analysis
  • Develop a plan to correct any repairs, system updates or deficiencies necessary to meet NEC and NFPA guidelines
  • Update building electrical one-line diagrams to depict current system
  • Deliver the completed arc flash risk assessment and install NFPA compliant labels identifying protection levels
  • Optional – Comprehensive three (3) hour training covering OSHA Regulations and NFPA 70E – perfect for anyone working on or near energized electrical equipment

Benefits of an ecs Arc Flash Assessment include:

  • Improved safety for people maintaining your electrical system so they will know the level of risk involved with each piece of equipment
  • Electricians will know what PPE (personal protective equipment) is required to safely work on your system
  • You will have current documentation of your facilities electrical system for future moves, adds and changes

Arc Flash Training – Seth & Kevin

The engineering team is continuously improving processes by cross training all members of the team in various aspects of project work. Throughout this summer, there have been many scheduled training sessions for this group from Arc Flash data collection to applying Arc Flash labels on the equipment.

Kevin Shriver, an ecs field technician, was able to walk through the data collection process with Seth, an engineer, to collect data from equipment on site to calculate an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis.

Parsons’ 17th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Earlier this month, ecs employees participated in Parsons’ 17th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Oak Marsh Golf Course. The funds raised at this event go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

On site Annual Fire Systems Test Training

In July, Lisa Bohmert joined Andy during parts of the Annual Fire Systems Test. Lisa was able to observe how the testing of smoke and water flow risers show up on the fire panel. She was also able to watch the annual pump house flow test and learn how all the systems tie together. Andy was able to explain how everything works in test mode versus a real life situation.

Additionally he covered information about the differences of wet and dry systems, PIVs, Road Boxes, and how the technicians enter the report information onto an iPad.

Lisa shed some light on her experience, “It was an excellent way to see how the work I do in the office will affect the technicians and end users. I love learning so this made for a great first week!”

Lisa Bohmert appointed Project Coordinator at ecs
