Every organization in every industry depends on its reputation in order to thrive or even to survive. Regardless of your industry, you need to work tirelessly to establish a positive reputation with your customer base, your target market and, just as importantly, with your employees. If people don’t think you offer a positive, supportive and above all else safe place to work, your overall growth is going to suffer. We bring this up because EAD has long helped clients deal with the problem of arc flashes, and arc flash prevention is an issue with which we’ve earned a high level of expertise.
OSHA estimates that more than 2,000 people are treated in burn centers with severe arc flash injuries each year. Between five and 10 arc flash explosions occur daily in U.S. facilities. EAD understands the risks associated with electrical equipment, which is why we offer in-depth Arc Flash and Electrical Safety training to companies based on OSHA, NEC, and NFPA 70E requirements. Our training program can be customized for your plant and environment.
We will work with you to help your employees achieve the safest possible work environment. Safety comes through an Arc Flash and Electrical Safety Program designed to fit your needs. Our electrical team can conduct, and on-site comprehensive Arc Flash and Electrical Safety training program based on your actual facility equipment, which provides more effective training than any standard, off-site training. When combined with an Arc Flash Study and audit of electrical lockout/tagout procedures, full compliance with OSHA requirements is met and documented.
Safe Work Environment
You owe it to yourself, your organization and those who work for you to do whatever you can to provide a safe working environment. If arc flashes are a possibility with your operation, then you need to take immediate steps to implement arc flash prevention protocols that minimize the chance that such an occurrence will take place.
Will an arc flash prevention protocol eliminate this problem altogether? Perhaps not, but if even one person is saved from injury or worse or one incident is avoided because of the ideas presented by arc flash prevention services and subsequently implemented into daily operations, all of the effort towards that end was worth it and then some.
If arc flash prevention is something that you need to deal with, then you need to work with a team that fully understands what to do, how to do it and perhaps most importantly, how to help implement these protocols as quickly and as efficiently as possible. You can’t put a price on safety, so contact EAD to find out more about how we can help you.
