Arc Flash is an arc of energy, up to 35,000º F that releases highly dangerous levels of heat energy capable of causing severe burns and even death. These arcs can result from multiple factors, including dropped tools, accidental contact with electrical systems, buildup of conductive dust, corrosion, and/or improper work procedures.
OSHA requires employers to protect workers from arc flash related injuries wherever the hazard for arc flash exists.
