Helping make facilities safe and meet NFPA70E and OSHA standards.
As many as 80% of all electrical injuries are caused by burns resulting from exposure to energy released from an arcing fault. As a result, the National Fire Protection Association Guidelines (NFPA 70E) now require facility owners to perform an arc flash hazard analysis prior to allowing a worker to perform a task on energized equipment.
UIS’s Arc Flash Studies provide recommendations for personal protective equipment (PPE), boundaries for limited, restricted, and prohibited approaches, and recommendations for flash protection and safe work practices.
Partnering with UIS in an Arc Flash/Shock Hazard study will help ensure the safety of your people and property and help maintain compliance with all applicable codes and standards.
