On any given day, 5-10 arc flash events occur in the United States. These arc flashes result in over 7,000 burn injuries annually. An arc flash can be caused by human error, equipment failure, aging equipment, failure to maintain equipment, or conductive dust.

Why conduct an arc flash study?

Arc Flash Studies must be completed regularly to maintain compliance with the many regulations and standards associated with electrical safety. Additional changes made to your facility will also require updated arc flash studies. Keeping your workplace safe and compliant is crucial to the safety of your people and the success of your business.
