Arc Flash Electrical Safety 2018

Arc flash risk had gain 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 organisationís 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.

marcus evans Arc Flash Electrical Safety 2018 conference will look at practical strategies and solutions to overcome arc flash hazards and risk. Delegates will be able to learn from industrial experts on how they have successfully implemented and rolled-out their arc flash programme. In addition, speakers from a wide variety of industries will share their risk assessment strategies to mitigate hazards and optimise PPE selection. Key industrial standards and legislations that will be discussed also include the NFPA 70E 2018 changes, ENA NENS 09-2014, Australian Occupational Health, Safety Act and the Electrical Work Code and many more.
