Electrical Safety in the WorkplaceI've found a very interesting arc flash article published by the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York. It describes and analyzes, including providing detailed photographs, an arc flash accident at NSLS. This is an excellent paper that can be used for training and giving people a better understanding what what arc flash is and the danger it represents.
The paper is available at:
The paper provides a brief introduction to arc flash and describes the IEEE arc flash tests. It then describes the accident and the causes of the accident. The final section, which is about half of the paper, is an excellent source of information about preventing arc flash hazards and providing the proper PPE.
