Why You Should Attend
Arc flash risk had gained more awareness in Australia recently. In the last year, there have been multiple cases of arc flash incidents in Australia where companies suffered financial losses, as they were fined for not providing a safe working environment. One victim suffered burns and could not work for up to 3 months, which affected the organisation’s operations. In addition, the recent updates on arc flash electrical standards like NFPA 70E and IEEE1585 are providing clearer guidelines in risk assessment, calculations and hazard mitigation. This provides the opportunity for organisations to provide and maintain a safer work environment for their employees.
