Protect what matters most. If you haven't taken the proper steps to mitigate the risks of arc flash, you're compromising worker safety, and you could be breaking the law. Use the resources here to get arc flash safety on the right track in your facility. Airline and Eaton can help through training, our products, and our expert knowledge.
- Learn how to improve safety: Eaton’s arc flash safety training shows you how to determine incident energy values and arc flash boundaries. You’ll use that information to select electrical components designed to minimize arc flash hazards and to choose the right personal protective equipment (PPE) according to NFPA 70E and CSA Z462.
- Choose the training that's right for you: Eaton offers both 4-hour and 8-hour “Understanding Arc Flash and Electrical Safety” training programs. Topics include existing and proposed standards, determining safe approach distance, methods for calculating prospective short circuit current, NFPA 70E methods for calculating flash boundary and incident energy, IEEE Standard 1584 methods for calculating flash boundary and incident energy, determining the arc flash PPE to protect personnel, selecting a PPE clothing system based on the latest NFPA standards, arc ratings for common types of garments and practical methods for reducing arc flash hazards.
- The reference materials and credits you need: Each attendee will receive an Electrical and Arc Flash Safety classroom reference manual, a soft-bound edition of NFPA Standard 70E-2018 and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for successful training program completion.
The first step in your arc flash safety journey is a study to estimate incident energy and recommend actions, including labeling, proper personal protective equipment (PPE), training and mitigation solutions.
Airline and Eaton can help. Our expert engineers have extensive experience helping facilities like yours enhance safety and can help you with your studies, labeling, boundaries, PPE, training and mitigation solutions.
