[POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE] Arc Flash Workshop - SAIEE Training Academy

Course 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

Target Audience

This course is designed for personnel who want to understand the safety principles & work practices. Those who will benefit the most from this workshop include the following :

  • Electrical Engineers
  • Consulting Engineers
  • Electrical Maintenance Engineers
  • Safety Engineers
  • Power System Protection & Control Engineers
    · Electrical & Instrumentation Technicians
