Limiting Arc Flash Exposure
Course Highlights

This online engineering course presents suggestions for limiting arc flash exposure, system preventive operation, limiting short circuit currents and arcing times, adjustments of protective settings and details on selecting and using personal protective equipment.


Arc flash incidents may happen despite care taken to avert them. In such circumstances, it is always better if the incident energy is low and staff is ready for the worst by implementing adequate PPE. Arc flash incidents can be cut down by use of adequate equipment, proper preventive care, planning and coordination of operation, as well as skill improvement and real experience. Also crucial is the mental and physical circumstances of the staff such that the dropping of equipment and tools, accidental touching, etc., are averted.
