Free Guide to Arc Flash Label InformationA free one page guide to the information typically on an arc flash label was just made available on our web site today.
NFPA 70E does not specify what should go on an arc flash label, so labels will vary in different facilities. This guide provides an overview that covers the more common information on labels. Not all of the following information may be included on the arc flash labels in your facility.
All arc flash labels should include boundary information. This is the key information that tells people how closely they may approach. The guide provides definitions of the various types of boundaries such as the: Flash Protection Boundary; the Limited Shock Approach Boundary; the Restricted Shock Approach Boundary; and the Prohibited Shock Approach Boundary.
In addition arc flash labels may specify the PPE that is required and provide information about the current, energy and voltage shock hazard. These are described on the Arc Flash Information Guide.
This guide is available free. It is a printed guide that is available either laminated or unlaminated. There is no postage or handling charge.
