Arc flash incidents can be minimized by use of adequate equipment, proper preventive care, planning and coordination of operation, as well as skill improvement and real experience. Also crucial is the mental and physical circumstances of the staff such that the dropping of equipment and tools, accidental touching, etc., are averted.

This course presents methods to limit arc flash exposure. It reviews preventive operation, limiting fault currents and adjustments of protection settings and personal protective equipment.
