U.K. Article – Arc Flash – Not Just an Electrocution Hazard – Part 3

Arc Flash – The need for risk assessment is embodied in European Law through directive 89/391 and is transposed into UK Law through Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.

The authors discuss how these principles can be interpreted when it comes to arc flash prevention.
