Arc Flash Basics and Hazard Planning Program
Author: Velimir Lackovic
This course gives an overview of arc flash hazards and explains the different causes, nature, findings, directions and processes related with arc flash hazards. An electric arc or an arcing fault is a flashover of electric current through air in electrical devices from one exposed live conductor to another or to ground. Arc flash hazard is the risk of excessive heat exposure and severe burn hurt due to arcing faults in electrical systems. Electric arcs generate intense heat, sound blast and pressure waves. They have very high temperatures, radiate acute heat, can ignite clothing and induce serious injuries that can be fateful.
This course presents the fundamentals of arc flash assessment and adequate hazard planning program. It reviews arc flash nature and causes, NFPA 70E protection boundaries, personal protective equipment, hazard classification, hazard study methods, mitigation measures and arc flash hazard planning program.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.
