Keeping you protected with services from short circuit analysis, protective device coordination study to training programs for employees
Current regulations make arc flash risk assessments mandatory if an employee is working on or around energized equipment rated above 50V, or if the facility has service equipment rated at 1200A or more for states that have adopted the latest version of the NEC. TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants performs short-circuit, protective device coordination and arc flash risk analysis to ensure compliance and safety in your facility. In addition, we offer services like training for your employees to help them to operate safely in the work environment.
An arc flash occurs either when an electric current pass through air between conductors or from a conductor to ground instead of its intended path; temperatures can reach as high as 35,000° Fahrenheit! Arc flash conditions can occur when work is being conducted on energized equipment, or during an electrical equipment failure.
An arc flash risk assessment is part of a complete electrical analysis required by OSHA, NFPA 70E and NFPA 70. It determines the incident energy to which a worker may be exposed to and how to protect the worker from the heat, light, and blast associated with an arc flash accident.
An arc flash risk assessment is performed to:
1. Phase 1 – Field Survey
2. Phase 2 – Electrical One-line
3. Phase 3 – Data Entry/ Analysis
4. Phase 4 – Draft/ Final Reports
5. Phase 5 – Label Installation
