What Is Arc Flash?
An arc flash occurs when energy is suddenly released through the air as a result of a breakdown between conductors. Workers who are in close proximity to the electrical equipment at the time of the accident are very likely to be knocked back by a forceful pressure burst and suffer severe burns. Injuries from an arc flash can be fatal. As such, preventative measures must be implemented during any work performed on or near energized circuits.
This course targets workers with little or no electrical training, but who may be required to perform activities near electrical equipment. The information and strategies included in the program are derived from the CSA Z462-18 (Canada Safety Association).
