Arc Flash / PPE Analysis
The purpose of an Arc Flash Hazards Study is to determine the location and severity of potential hazards and to suggest appropriate courses of action to minimize them and enhance workplace safety. One of the most common OSHA standards cited for arc flash safety compliance is 29 CFR 1910.132(d)(1) which requires employers to perform a PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) hazard assessment and to determine the necessary NFPA 70E PPE level.
Conducting an Arc Flash / PPE Analysis requires electrical engineering expertise and an in-depth knowledge of a facility’s electrical system. Perigon has qualified licensed Electrical Engineers that routinely perform Arc Flash Hazards Studies and Arc Flash Training for our clients. The studies are based on the IEEE 1584 calculation procedure to determine incident energy values, working boundaries, and Warning Labels at electrical equipment in accordance with NFPA 70E.
