Electrical Workplace Safety Training Is the Best Insurance Money Can Buy

This article is in Plant Services magazine. It provides a overview giving the background on arc flash safety.  On the second page the article provides a number of good ideas for improving safety. The article points out that:

"The human damage and financial costs that result from arc flash accidents can be very significant. It is estimated that a serious accident from which the victim survives will on average cost more than $10 million, which is a combination of direct and indirect costs. Some very serious accidents have resulted in much higher costs. The victim often suffers permanent and disfiguring physical trauma that shortens the life span and prevents them from ever returning to work. This is a serious risk not only to the worker and the worker’s family, but to the employer and its insurers. For small employers, the company itself may not survive."
