70e Arc Flash Safety in Milwaukee
Keep Your Facility Safe with Arc Flash Labeling, Hazard Analysis & 70e Compliance
Arc flash (also called a flashover) is a sudden unexpected release of intense heat, sound, and light energy from electricity traveling through arcs. It is caused by either a phase to ground or phase to phase fault. An uncontrolled arc flash can cause fires, injuries and even death. For all your arc flash solution and 70E compliance electrical needs, choose Terminal-Andrae, Milwaukee's top electrical contractor.
Arc Flash contributing factors include:
- Dropped tools
- Accidental contact with electrical systems
- Buildup of conductive dust
- Improper work procedures
- Equipment Failure
Arc flash studies are extremely important regarding compliance with OSHA, NFPA, NEC and ANSI regulations. These studies also allow for increased reliability of your systems and equipment, often finding issues before they become a tragedy. The National Fire Protection Association issues OSHA-referenced standards and regulations that require employers to provide warning labels and protective equipment to minimalize the risk of injury when employees work on or are in the proximity of energized electrical equipment.
Terminal Andrae has decades of experience and resources to perform the data-gathering survey, engineering software calculations and one-line diagrams required to achieve NFPA 70E compliance. Terminal Andrae provides many Arc Flash services like single line diagrams, hazard analysis/coordination studies and labeling and electrical preventative maintenance programs.
Single Line Diagram
NFPA 70E compliance requires up-to-date single line diagrams. This information is essential for documenting, troubleshooting and communicating information about your power systems. 70E compliance includes how to maintain a safe workplace. It also covers different safeguards to operate in an efficient and safe workplace. To meet this requirement, Terminal-Andrae conducts a comprehensive site survey used to update your existing single line diagrams or complete any unfinished electrical system drawings.
Arc Flash Hazard Analysis/Coordination Study
Terminal-Andrae uses state-of-the-art software to evaluate various electrical system configurations and operating modes. Arc Flash hazard analysis is essential for anyone working on or near proximity to energized electrical equipment. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states in their Standard 70E a "Flash hazard analysis shall be done before a person approaches any exposed electrical conductor or circuit part that has not been placed in an electrically safe work condition."
To bring you into compliance with this standard, Terminal-Andrae offers Arc Flash Hazard Analysis throughout Wisconsin to determine the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for anyone working near an exposed electrical conductor or circuit part. To help keep you in compliance, Terminal-Andrae Arc Flash Hazard Analysis also specifies the appropriate OSHA & ANSI Arc Flash Labels. Most important are the resulting safety benefits of a Flash Hazard Analysis helping prevent injuries, loss of property and expensive downtime.
Arc Flash Labeling
Arc Flash Labels identify potential arc flash hazards. Arc Flash Labels warn qualified individuals of the type of electrical hazard, correct Flash Protection Boundary distance, and the required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Labels must be clearly visible before examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance of the electrical equipment.
Electrical Preventative Maintenance Program
Terminal-Andrae creates a schedule of service based upon the manufacturer’s recommendations and the environment to perform thermal scans and facilitate circuit breaker testing to identify potential problems at your facility.
