Introductory Arc Flash TrainingI always have my eyes open for good resources that will help with training.
The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries has developed an excellent four page arc flash safety booklet that is available online as a PDF file. The booklet is called: Hazard Prevention - Burn Injury Facts.
The booklet provides concise information that is easy-to-readand understand. It would be a good booklet to give new employees to familiarize them with the hazards of arc flash.
The booklet starts by describing arc flash, explaining why it is hazardous, and giving several examples of actual arc flash incidents. It then provides a summary of how to prevent arc flash injuries by eliminating the hazard; using engineering controls; using administrative controls; using work practice controls; and using PPE. The final section describes what to do should someone by injured by arc flash.
