Why You Should Attend

Arc Flash Electrical Safety 2019

In February 2018, an electrician and his assistant received burn injuries by arc flash in a low-voltage switchboard, according to WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety. Just like this numerous injuries and deaths are caused each year by arc flash incidents. While arc flash risks cannot be completely eliminated, there are many things that we can do to prevent an incident. 

With all new case studies, interactive sessions and an unmatched line-up of arc flash and electrical safety speakers, this is the event you should attend to improve your arc flash electrical safety practices and network with peers from leading Australian organisations. By attending Arc Flash Electrical Safety 2019, you will benefit from critical insights and practical tools into cost-effective prevention methods, emerging arc flash technologies and trends, guidelines and standards for a safer workplace as well as controls, calculations and maintenance of electrical assets.

Your Take-aways:

         Assessing the role of human factors during an incident analysis in your arc flash programme

         Improving your arc flash safety with best practices in electrical signage and engineering controls

         Leveraging arc flash detection solutions and minimising electrical hazards
