Hugh Hoagland Presents - Electrical Safety for Shock and Arc Flash
Safety statistics from electrical arc flash burns and shock led to mandatory regulations and standards. These are very difficult to implement in the absence of a structured management system. We discuss these safety statistics and present the concept of a “Safety Cycle™” as a tool to support the implementation of an effective and continuously improving Electrical Safety Program. Common pitfalls of arc flash and shock PPE programs are discussed with a simple case study that is followed by PPE best practices.
The latest PPE developments, such as multi-hazard PPE, gloves, face-shields, and blankets, are then discussed together with considerations for arc blast and PPE contamination studies. This leads into the final section “The Hierarchy of Controls” for Electrical Hazards. The presentation concludes with a few examples on how to practically implement the hierarchy of controls, followed by a Q&A session.
