Working near an electrical hazard is dangerous and can be fatal. Any work on or near energized equipment must be done only when measures are in place to provide protection from electric shock and burn. With adequate safety measures in place, every electrical injury and fatality can be prevented. Where PPE is relied upon for worker protection, an electrical hazard is considered to remain and it is still necessary to address safety requirements for other workers in the area. There are basically two ways to be injured by electricity. One is by electric shock and the other is by arc flash.

Category: Electrical View all files in this category Kb Electrical Arc Flash Hazard Protection Learning Guide The purpose of this Electrical Arc Flash Hazard Protection Standard Learning Guide is to inform and train employees on the safety practices and personal protection equipment requirements associated with working near sources of potential arc flash hazards. This standard addresses arc flash and shock hazards, and there is a need for more empirical incident data on the actual hazards that may be experienced when equipment faults or adverse electrical events occur. In recent years, the standard has become increasingly stringent in response to the increased understanding of electrical accidents in industrial plants and facilities.
