Arc Flash Safety Awareness
Arc flash — an instance when an electrical current leaves its intended path — can occur in any environment where exposed electronics are regularly interacted with. This course describes what causes arc flashes, how they can be prevented, and the necessary Health and Safety practices that must be employed to eliminate them.
This course will provide Participants with an understanding of what Arc Flash is, its causes and how potentially damaging it can be. The course will explain the nature of regulations regarding electrical equipment maintenance and repair and why only “Qualified” personnel should carry out such procedures. It will teach non-qualified workers how to recognize Arc Flash areas and what procedures are in place that they must follow to protect themselves for possible injury.
