What if an Arc Flash Hazard Exists?
If an Arc Flash Hazard exists during an Arc Flash Assessment, three (3) important items are determined:
- Safety-related work practices to use
- Arc Flash Boundary
- PPE to use within the Arc Flash Boundary
An arc flash is the result of a rapid release of energy due to an arcing fault between phase bus bar and another phase bus bar, neutral or a ground. An arc flash can generate over 5,000o F in under a second.
