Arc Flash



Arc Flash
Arc Flash is arguably one of the most topical issues being discussed in the electrical engineering community today (especially in the mining, utilities & manufacturing areas). Technology & safety procedures have significantly reduced most other forms of electrical injuries; however, incidents related to arc flash have surfaced as one of the leading causes of injury and death to workers.

Arc Flash
OVERVIEW

Arc flash is arguably one of the most topical issues being discussed in the electrical engineering community today (especially in the mining, utilities & manufacturing areas). Technology & safety procedures have significantly reduced most other forms of electrical injuries; however, incidents related to arc flash have surfaced as one of the leading causes of injury and death to workers.

What delegates will benefit from:

• Learn to apply the NEW South Africa Arc Flash Standard SANS 724

• Identify the important hazards in O&M work in different parts of electrical installations

• Recognise the dangers of arc flash events to working personnel & their impact on equipment

• Know the codes & standards dealing with arc flash danger

• Acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge to carry out arc flash impact studies by collecting system data & computing the arc flash incident energy & flash protection boundary

• Understand the importance of proper design of electrical equipment in avoiding arc flash incidents & ensuring safety in the event of an arc flash

• Select appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & FR clothing required for avoiding serious or lethal injuries
