An electrical arc flash blast is an explosive electrical plasma discharge that can cause extreme burning and neural damage to anyone caught in its radius. Making sure to be careful and to always wear the appropriately-rated arc flash clothing is the first step toward a safer working environment. In order to determine the properly rated PPE to wear, it is neccessary to calculate your facility's electrical system.
Creative Safety Supply carries an arc flash calculator and analysis software to make that job easier. This will save you time, and will perhaps improve your liabilitiy responsibilities. Then, after you have determined the proper rating for each electrical compenent in your study, you can use a LabelTac thermal label printer to print the appropriate arc flash warning sticker or NFPA 70E standard rating label. Our arc flash package pictured to the right comes with the software.
