Follow Standards When Selecting Personal Protection For Arc Flash Hazards

Yesterday's issue of Plant Services Magazine includes an article decribing the process of selecting the proper PPE for arc flash protection. You can read the article at:

The article starts by describing the: "Four-step hazard calculations: First, establish the job’s hazard risk category. Second, determine what clothing and equipment the hazard risk category requires. Third, identify what arc thermal performance value (ATPV) rating is necessary. Finally, select personal protective equipment that meets or exceeds the designated ATPV rating."

It then goes on to provide a quick overview of some of the recent improvements in PPE protection and comfort provided by specific PPE manufacturer's products.
