Electrical safety in the workplace is an important topic that is addressed by NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® (2015 edition). This document addresses arc flash and shock hazards, and there is a need for more factual incident data on the actual hazards that may be experienced when equipment faults or adverse electrical events occur.
In 2007, General Electric surveyed industry professionals working in facilities related to the oil and gas industry, pulp and paper industry, and power generation. Survey questions were directed at whether or not workers in these industries knew the current hazard risk categories in their facilities.
Three key factors can determine the intensity of an arc flash harm on you: The quantity of fault current available in your system; the time until an arc flash fault is cleared; your distance from an arc.
Why did OSHA decide to modify its standards for electric power generation, transmission, and distribution work? OSHA last issued rules for the construction of transmission and distribution installations in 1972. Those provisions were out of date and inconsistent with the more recently promulgated general industry standard covering the operation and maintenance of electric power generation, transmission, and distribution lines and equipment.
