Arc flash survivor's storyBill Giffen was hit by an arc flash incident last year while working as a Master Electrician. The resultant injuries have left him permanently disfigured, and have had a serious impact on his personal life. On his web site, www.arcflashsurvivor.com, Bill tells his story and provides photos of the accident's aftermath.
Bill sees his first-hand experience with the dangers of arc flash as giving him a mission to help inform other electrical workers of the importance of safety consciousness. He offers a presentation designed, in his own words, "to bring the very real face of an accident to you, your employees and your co-workers." More than a run-through of dry safety procedures, Bill's presentation is designed to provide a wake-up call to the importance of using well-planned, safe procedures every time--because it only takes one lapse of judgment to change a worker's life forever.
A portion of the proceeds from Bill's presentation is donated to trauma and burn centers.
