Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

To comply with today’s NFPA 70E regulations (Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces), facility owners now need to have their low and medium-voltage switchgear tested.

Potomac’s engineers collect data from your electrical distribution equipment and analyze the data to determine the flash-protection boundary distance and the appropriate PPE requirement, We will install the proper labeling so the facility is compliant and is better able to alert and safeguard employees against potential injury.

ARC Flash Hazard Analysis


Any employee working on energized equipment must see a prominently displayed label that identifies the existence of an Arc Flash Hazard, and alerts them to the appropriate PPE (personal protection equipment) required. There are reports that OSHA is more aggressively monitoring NFPA 70E compliance, so this has become a top priority for facility managers.
