Arc Flash Studies
An arc flash study (sometimes called an arc flash analysis or a hazard analysis) is an on-site study of your facility, conducted by a trained expert qualified to evaluate your electrical system and note areas that could present a risk to your personnel or equipment. The study will produce a report containing suggestions and instructions to keep your workers safe and to improve and maintain your electrical system. The report will recommend appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for your workers, and suggest adjustments you can make to reduce your workers' exposure to arc flash hazards.
Assess the Workplace for Hazards
OSHA 1910.132(d) requires the employer to "assess the workplace for hazards." Arc flash is one of the electrical hazards recognized by OSHA and NFPA 70E - 2012. NFPA 70E - 2012 article 130.5 requires an arc flash hazard analysis calculation be performed with the only exception being use of 70E tables, if you meet the table parameters. It usually requires an engineering evaluation to determine if you can use the tables.
