Step 7: Training
Our Arc Flash Training program is conducted on-site by trained professionals to educate your workforce about the dangers of arc flash hazards. We review and discuss NEC, NESC, OSHA and NFPA regulations and how they apply to your facility. We provide step-by-step demonstrations on setting up flash protection boundaries, how to safely work on equipment and the various categories and levels of personal protective equipment. Training can be customized for qualified or non-qualified personnel.
Remember, your facility’s safety is determined by your workforce’s knowledge, training and attitudes about arc flash hazards.
