Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
Keeping your workplace safe
The National Fire and Protection Agency (NFPA) codes are used as a basis for the safety regulations by government agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). New OSHA and NFPA 70E codes require stricter arc flash hazard safety regulations. The 70E (“Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace”) calls for more safety-related work practices, safety-related maintenance requirements, and requirements for special equipment.
