Arc Flash Hazard Prevention Through Labeling
Arc flash has only begun to receive significant industry attention in recent years. Before arc flash was understood, it was believed that electrical shock was the primary cause of all injuries in an electrical accident. While electrical shock does cause burns, the majority of all hospital admissions due to electrical accident related injuries were from arc flash. Industry professionals estimate that at least 5 to 10 arc flash explosions occur per day in the U.S., resulting in approximately 1 to 2 deaths daily.
OSHA, the NFPA and NIOSH standards organizations are concerned with issues such as circuit protection labeling, arc flash danger signage and electrocution warning signs fonts icons. We offer information and links to supplies and equipment designed to help minimize electric hazard and arc flash hazard risks.
