Electrical Safety Practices

Is your company compliant with Arc Flash Mandates and Safe Work Practices?

warning label Fox Systems, Inc. can help you build an effective arc flash hazard safety program that meets the rigorous requirements of OSHA and the NFPA 70E--and enhances the protection of your employees and company. We will walk you through the essential steps to forming a safety culture at your facility that includes a combination of safe work practices, prodedures, diagnostics, hazard inspections, documentation and more.

NFPA-70E compliance takes more than a label. NFPA, the IEEE Safety Committee, and other groups have done a great job of spreading the word regarding arc-flash hazards and the need to address this specific safety issue. Unfortunately, a common misconception of employers is that if they label equipment for arc-flash hazards, and enforce the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) per the label, they are in compliance with 70E and OSHA requirements. Nothing could be further from the truth. Arc-flash hazard labeling and PPE compliance are only a small part of 70E compliance and even a smaller part of a properly defined safety program. Very few employers appear to understand the thought process behind 70E or the basis for the standard. If maintenance personnel are not informed why they must work within certain safety constraints, then the arc-flash label and PPE requirements become merely another task that can be sidestepped.
