  • arc flash training

  • caution - ELECTRICAL installation

Satin American’s electrical safety program is designed to explain the Principles of Arc Flash Protection, avoiding unsafe acts, working safely, and understanding codes and standards relating to the industry. The latest technology, standards, and materials available are presented and demonstrated. References include NFPA-70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace and OSHA 1910-269 & OSHA 1910-331-335. Standard or customized training can be provided utilizing customer’s specific electrical distribution system information. 

what is arc flash?

An arcing fault is the flow of current through the air between phase conductors or phase conductors and neutral or ground. An arcing fault can release tremendous amounts of concentrated radiant energy at the point of the arcing in a small fraction of a second. The result can be extremely high temperatures, a tremendous pressure blast and shrapnel hurling at high velocity (in excess of 700 miles per hour).

short circuit study

A Short Circuit and Coordination Study is critical for the safe, efficient and reliable operation of any distribution system. A Short Circuit Study will help to ensure that personnel and equipment are protected by establishing proper interrupting ratings.

If an electrical fault exceeds the interrupting rating of the protective device, the results can be devastating, including injury, damaged electrical equipment and expensive downtime.

safety requirements

OSHA is an enforcer of safety practices in the workplace.

OSHA 1910.132(d), and 1926.28(a) states that the employer is responsible to assess the hazards in the work place:

  • Document the assessment
  • Select and require use of the correct PPE
  • OSHA considers the NFPA a recognized industry standard and the field inspectors carry with them a copy of the NFPA 70E and use it to enforce safety procedures related to arc flash
  • The employer is required to conduct hazard assessment in accordance with 29CFR1910.132(d)(1).
  • Employers must conduct hazard/risk assessment and select and require their employees to use PPE, as stated in the NFPA 70E standard, 2012 Edition, to be in compliance with the Hazard Assessment and Equipment Selection requirements set by OSHA.
  • Assessments must be performed at no more than a five year interval unless major equipment changes have been made; then it shall be performed sooner.
