I just started reading this paper, "Establishing an Arc Flash Loss Prevention Program" at: http://www.mcdean.com/about/docs/AFLPWhitePaper.pdf

This article talks about compliance with OSHA and NFPA, and barely makes mention of the IEEE 1584.

I find troubling Section 7, "CAUTION: Using Simplified Tables & IEEE Standard 1584 Charts"

This section talks a little about the hazard of using the tables.
Although the article does not specifically say the tables came from 1584, they do state: "These charts allow for simplified analysis techniques to determine the required arc flash PPE based on IEEE Standard 1584." There is no mention that the tables are found in the NFPA 70E.

So, what are these guys selling??
I understand that the paper is primarily about risk management, but it appears they went out of their way to mis-characterize the IEEE 1584 contributions.
