Every Industry Needs To Address Arc Flash HazardsLast Friday members of the International Association of Operative Millers' (IAOM) Wheat State District met in Wichita, KS. This is an international organization for grain millers. GrainNet reports that "Protecting millers against the dangers of an arc flash comprised the bulk of the technical session."
It is great to see industry paying attention to and addressing the need to implement arc flash safety. Although establishing safe work practices and labeling equipment that presents an arc flash hazard has been required by NFPA 70E for a number of years, many are still not aware of the hazards of arc flash.
To help increase arc flash awareness we have just published a new page on our web site that provides an overview and introduction to the dangers of arc flash. We will be publicizing this page in the materials we distribute to our customers.
