Arc Flash Studies

Arc flash hazard assessments are a critical part of electric system safety and are a direct driver of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements and other safety policies. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has adopted stricter safe work standards for personnel safety when working on and near energized lines and equipment, and hazard assessments need to continue to meet these standards.

Our arc flash studies:

  • Assess arc flash hazards to comply with OSHA and National Electric Safety Code (NESC) requirements
  • Utilize a range of tools to perform accurate incident energy calculations and uses methods such as IEEE 1584, ARCPRO, and other industry standards
  • Consider PPE requirements
  • Identify the maximum available incident energy in various conveniently delineated work zones for easy reference and use in developing work safety and PPE
  • Offer recommendations for lowering arc flash hazards
  • Provide final arc flash calculations in a written report
  • Provide a complete set of arc flash labels to clearly mark the hazard at each piece of electrical equipment
