According to OSHA, rubber-insulating gloves must be inspected when issued and every six months thereafter. However, OSHA’s eTool states that a monthly inspection is the best practice. Glove testing is an important part of any electrical safety program.
How often is arc flash training required?
The training is required to be completed every three years. However, problems discovered during an annual audit or when new equipment is added require immediate refresher training. Retraining should also occur if an employee’s job duties change.
Per OSHA Standards, an unqualified worker is prohibited from crossing an arc flash boundary. Arc flash boundaries protect those employees who don’t have the proper training or credentials to work in these areas.
Category 1 – Minimum Arc Rating 4 cal/cm2
Category 2 – Minimum Arc Rating 8 cal/cm2
Category 3 – Minimum Arc Rating 25 cal/cm2
Category 4 – Minimum Arc Rating 40 cal/cm2
Qualified employees are allowed to work on or around energized parts. Therefore, they must have the electrical skills, knowledge, and experience to work with electrical hazards and potential arc flash hazards. They should be well versed in the regulations found in NFPA 70E, OSHA regulations, and IEEE 1584.
An arc flash analysis can also be called an arc flash study or arc flash risk assessment. These aim to evaluate the risk of an arc flash incident, determine the amount of energy the employee might be exposed to, and analyze how to protect the employee in case of a serious injury.
Arc flash courses can benefit any employee who works with or around electricity. Some common occupations that require training include electricians, linemen, HVAC installers, construction workers, maintenance workers, electrical engineers, janitorial staff, and others.
