Arc Flash Safety Hazard Warning Labels. NFPA 70E Compliance & Electrical Safe Work Practices TipsI just ran across a good article in the American Chronicle about arc flash labels and arc flash safe practices related to labeling. The article provides an overview of arc flashing labeling. The concluding paragraph states:
"When determining what arc flash hazard labels to use and what to include on them, always focus on the end users – the persons in the field exposed to the hazards. These labels exist to protect them, to give them the information they need to do their work and stay safe. Keep the information brief and easy to read. And always train, audit, re-train. People don´t do what you expect, they do what you inspect. Personnel must understand the purpose of these labels, the safety net they provide, and, as with any other tool or safe work practice, how to use them."
