An arc flash is an extremely dangerous electrical hazard that employees working with and around energized electrical equipment are exposed to most every day. An arc flash can reach temperatures of 30,000o F, propel shrapnel over 700 MPH, and produce a pressure wave in excess of 2,000 lbs./ in2. The effects of these occurrences can be devastating, damaging equipment and harming or killing personnel. Survivors of these extreme events are often left with long term harm, both mentally and physically.
OSHA has made it clear that, due to the severity of arc flash events their potential to cause extreme harm to persons and property, arc flash regulations will be more strictly enforced and the fines for failing to comply will be harsh. OSHA provides guidelines for arc flash compliance via NFPA 70E.
