Aug 22, 2018According to a U.S. study conducted by the Fire Protection Research Foundation concerning arc flash injury, the most common work task leading to arc flash injury is the replacement of fuses. Many workers do this without turning off the power and verifying that equipment is de-energized. From the study, arc flash injury has also accounted for 29 percent of electrical fatalities from 2003 to 2010 and 36 percent of non-fatal electrical injuries from 2004 to 2013 in the United States.
Jul 25, 2018Electrical fires are sneaky, insidious and often odorless. They don’t produce smoke, so smoke detectors don’t immediately sound an alarm. When faulty or damaged electrical wiring heats up, it slowly begins to smolder. These types of fires can be so slow-burning that it can take months to actually ignite. Even worse, they can be very hard to extinguish once they take hold. It makes sense that the best approach is to prevent electrical fires instead of having to deal with one.
