Arc-rated clothing and other PPE is selected with a rating sufficient for the incident energy exposure and shall be used by the employee based on the specific task. IEEE Std. 1584 tm\, IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations is the method used globally for calculating the prospective incident energy.\nNFPA 70E and CSA Z462 also require determining the arc flash boundary\, which is the distance from a potential arc source where the incident energy is 1.2 cal/cm2. This value is considered to be the point at which the onset of a second-degree burn occurs. Live work performed outside of the arc flash boundary does not require PPE\, although the risk of some injury still exists. \nThe concept of these requirements is simple. At each location\, the arc flash study is used to determine: The perspective incident energy exposure for a worker’s chest and face\, the rating of PPE based on the perspective incident energy\, the arc flash boundary. \nAlthough NFPA 70E provides more generalized PPE tables as a simplified alternative for PPE selection\, an arc flash calculation study requires performing calculations to estimate the magnitude of incident energy exposure. These calculations are based on specific details\, including the available short circuit current\, device clearing time\, grounding\, arc gap distance\, equipment type\, and many other factors. \nThis information\, as well as data regarding electric shock protection and approach limits\, can be included on the arc flash warning labels placed on the equipment under study. Before conducting energized work\, a qualified worker can refer to the label and obtain the data necessary for the shock hazard risk assessment and the arc flash hazard risk assessment as required by NFPA 70E and CSA Z462. \nAlthough an arc flash study can appear to be complex\, it can be more manageable when broken down into basic steps as outlined in this training program. \n\nWhy Perform an Arc Flash Study?\n\nAccording to OSHA 1910.132(d) The employer is responsible to assess the hazards in the work \n Jim is setting up an arc flash test. \nplace\, select\, have\, and use the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and document the assessment. The use of NFPA 70E and other related industry consensus standards has been used to demonstrate whether an employer acted reasonably when there is a possible OSHA enforcement action taken. \nSo although NFPA 70E is not directly part of OSHA standards\, it can be used as evidence of whether an employer acted reasonably in complying with OSHA standards and addressing “recognized hazards”. \nThere are more specific links within the OSHA standards as well. A typical example is found in 1910.335\, Safeguards for personnel protection which requires: “(a)(1)(i) Employees working in areas where there are potential electrical hazards shall be provided with\, and shall use\, electrical protective equipment that is appropriate for the specific parts of the body to be protected and for the work to be performed.” \nThis regulation requires that employees must be properly protected from potential electrical hazards\, by using adequate PPE\, but it does not provide specific detail of what specific personal protective equipment is necessary to achieve the objective. It might be considered that based on this generalized statement\, the selection of the correct PPE is open to interpretation however\, this would be incorrect and an Arc Flash study should be performed. \n\nQuestions?\nFor questions\, registration information or to discuss holding this class at your location as an on-site training program\, contact our Program Director at 800.874.8883 (In U.S.) or 480.725.7451 \nBrainfiller\, Inc. | P.O.

Jim’s training is based on his insider’s view from holding many leadership positions for the development of various electrical safety standards coupled with his arc flash testing experience and broad electrical power background. This provides him a unique perspective from the inside – a perspective he loves sharing with others. When asked questions about some topics\, his explanations often run along the line of “Well\, here’s what happened in the lab when we blew it up…” \nHere is a sample of Jim’s involvement. \n♦ Vice Chair – IEEE 1584 – IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Calculations\n♦ Technical Committee Member – NFPA 70E Committee\n♦ International Chair – Geneva\, Switzerland based\, IEC TC78 Live Working – 40+ global standards including many for arc flash.\n♦ IEEE/NFPA Arc Flash Collaborative Research Project – Member of the Steering Committee\n♦ Author of Complete Guide to Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculation Studies \nFor a summary of the 2021 changes to NFPA 70E based on Jim’s article published in the multi-award winning Electrical Contractor Magazine\, [CLICK HERE] \n[Learn more about Jim Phillips] \nWatch Jim explain why electrical equipment’s doors are not considered as protection from an arc flash. One of his arc flash tests illustrates how doors can blow open during an arc flash. \n \nINTRODUCTION \nHUMAN EFFECTS\nPhysiological Effects\, Tissue Damage\, Internal Organ Damage\, Burns\, Fibrillation\, “Curable” 2nd Degree Burn Requirements\, Arc Blast Pressure\, Sound Pressure\, Incident Energy and 1.2 Calories/cm2 \nCODES AND STANDARDS\nOSHA 29 CFR – Part 1910\, Subpart S\, NFPA 70\, National Electrical Code®\, 2021 NFPA 70E\, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace\, IEEE Standard 1584™\, IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations\, Legal Requirements\, Liability \nCATEGORIES OF ELECTRICAL HAZARDS\nElectric Shock\, Arc Flash\, Arc Blast\, Sound Pressure\, Shrapnel\, UV Light \nARCING SHORT CIRCUIT CURRENT AND ARC DURATION\nBasic concepts of short circuit current\, understanding arc duration and time-current curves \nOVERVIEW OF GLOBAL CHANGES TO THE 2021 EDITION \nNEW AND REVISED DEFINITIONS \nQUALIFIED PERSON\nNFPA 70E Definition\, Trained and Knowledgeable Requirements\, Identifies Hazards \nELECTRICAL SAFETY PROGRAM\nOverview of Changes\, General\, Inspection\, Awareness and Self Discipline\, Electrical Safety Program Principles\, Controls and Procedures\, Risk Assessment Procedure\, Job Safety Planning and Job Briefing\, Incident Investigation (New)\, Auditing \nOVERVIEW OF REORGANIZATION OF ARTICLE 110 \nDETAILED REVIEW OF MAJOR CHANGES \nPROCESS FOR ESTABLISHING AND VERIFYING AN ELECTRICALLY SAFE WORK CONDITION\nVerification Steps\, Methods Used\, PPE to be Worn During Procedure \nSHOCK RISK ASSESSMENT\nReorganization Overview\, General\, Shock Risk Assessment\, Additional Protective Measures\, Shock PPE\, Documentation\, Shock Protection Boundaries\, Limited Approach Boundary\, Restricted Approach Boundary \nARC FLASH RISK ASSESSMENT\nReorganization Overview\, General\, Estimate of Likelihood of Severity\, Arc Flash Risk Assessment\, Additional Protective Measures\, Documentation\, Arc Flash Boundary\, Arc Flash PPE\, Incident Energy Analysis Method\, IEEE 1584\, Effect of Arc Flash Duration\, Time Current Curves and Protective Devices\, Incident Energy and Distance\, Selection of Arc Rated Clothing And PPE.
