I downloaded a Fluke white paper which had the following:

"to reduce the indecent energy on the body"

Something I hadn't considered.

We don't have a "best post of the day" award but if we did, this would be it. :)

Did you attach the white paper?

I send an email to Fluke. They are on top of it. Their reply:

"We're trying to track down the author of this application note. We have not found the term "indecent energy" in other publications."

Indecent Arc Flashing has been around since the 70s. Derived from “Arc”hie Bunkers’ days of a blooper, well publicised but never aired, between Meathead and Archie.

It must be noted that special labeling for equipment subject to indecent flash is required. Labels must be located between 36 and 42 inches above the floor, at least 6 inches square, 7 for usually high energy situations. Both front and back sides of the equipment must be labeled especially if the equipment is over 50 years old. Safety distances vary, depending upon the age of the technician, See OOPSHAs’ website.

Link to a GE article:
http://www.geindustrial.com/Newsletter/current_transformer_paper.pdf
At least 3 mentions of "current caring devices".
I didn't know they cared.

The safety distance will depend on the so called 'arc length' of the indecent flasher and the visual acuity of the person looking at it. For example, a typical arc length and 20-20 vision requires a distance of approximately 25 meters to reduce mental scarring to an acceptable level.

They took a stab at it:

We are referring to a Arch Flash that would cause a burn.

I'm not sure if they passed or failed the Turing Test.

I'm still trying to figure out what the appropriate PPE would be.

The general electrical might have a solution to this and the sight is full of innovations at its best for as the company is well renowned for its innovations and experiments. Seriously I have never heard of such term ever before.
