DILLSBURG, Pa., March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leer Electric, Inc. now offers arc flash services to protect people and properties. Arc flashes are the sudden, unexpected electrical surges or discharges. They can cause serious injury or even death to personnel working on electrical items.
It's possible to protect against arc flashes with proper planning, PPE (personal protective equipment) and, more importantly, safety procedures and training. Having electrical devices labeled to inform everyone that works on them what PPE is required.
Leer Electric, Inc.'s prevention process begins with a thorough investigation of all electrical distribution systems in a facility. The complex study pinpoints potential electrical hazards and how they can be eliminated. It also may account for nearly half of the entire analysis effort.
The results are used to create a comprehensive model of the facility's electrical distribution system that narrows the troubleshooting process, ensures operation of the facility and upgrades compliance with industry specifications and requirements. The model subsequently becomes the foundation of an engineering analysis that focuses on incident energy, short circuits, protective device interruption and coordination.
The bottom line is a detailed report pinpointing potential risks, problem areas and detailed recommendations and methods to enhance safety and reduce the risk of arc flashes.
Proper field labeling also plays an important role in the safety of workers. These labels, which must comply with industry standards and NFPA 70E, are installed on electrical equipment to warn workers of potential hazards. Labeled equipment includes panels and switchboards, meter sockets, industrial control systems and more.
Leer Electric, Inc. provides employee training services that include life-saving safety practices. Its arc flash program also brings a facility into compliance with electric codes and OSHA regulations.
