An arc flash is an occurrence where a flashover of electrical current leaves its path and travels through the air, from one conductor to another, and even to the ground. It is a major concern for workers performing maintenance or service on energized electrical equipment. Preventing these accidents is the responsibility of every non-dwelling facility, meaning that the employer is required by the NEC (section 110.16) to mark the equipment’s approach/protection boundaries using arc flash labels, not the manufacturer. Having these arc flash labels is crucial in order to protect the lives of the workers.
