Arc Flash Hazard Analysis (Study)

The National Fire Protection Association Guidelines (NFPA 70E) require facility owners to perform an arc flash hazard analysis prior to allowing a worker to perform a task on energized equipment. The arc flash analysis identifies the presence and location of potential hazards and provides recommendations for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), boundaries for limited, restricted and prohibited approaches, recommendations for flash protection, and safe work practices.

Arc Flash Hazard Labeling Plan

Electrical inspectors are now enforcing the new labeling requirement published in the National Electrical Code (NEC 110.16) that states a warning label must be placed on electrical equipment that may remain energized during maintenance or repair. Vertiv can assist with compliance during each phase of an arc flash hazard analysis. In the initial phase, Vertiv supplies the labels and can also assist in applying the appropriate warning labels and signs.
