    According 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.

    Electrical 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.

    As the temperatures heat up, it’s time to review your warm weather safety standards for your electrical crew.

Yet, arc fault circuit protection is still only mandated for 70 percent of a home’s electrical circuits. To get closer to 100 percent protection, consumers need to demand it, and electrical contractors need to get on board.

    Good safety practice requires that workers take responsibility for their own safety and that of their co-workers. But it’s also important that organizations empower them to do so.

    If you’ve never seen an arc flash firsthand, you may not realize just how destructive they can be. An arc flash can cause significant damage to electrical systems, start fires and cause injuries or even deaths. You don’t even have to be caught by the arc itself for this to occur; damage radiates out from the arc, and the air surrounding an arc flash can become as hot as the surface of the sun!
