ARC FLASH LABELS

What is an Arc Flash?

An Arc Flash is an electric current passing through air between ungrounded conductors or between ungrounded conductors and grounded conductors resulting in an explosive burst of heat, light and a pressure wave. The temperatures can reach as high as 35,000°F. Exposure to these conditions burns the skin directly, may cause a variety of serious injuries and can even result in death.

How to avoid or minimize this hazard?

There are multiple national organizations that provide guidelines and standards on the risks and prevention of electrical related hazards in the work place. Among them are OSHA, ANSI and NFPA. Of these three organizations, NFPA provides the most comprehensive standard for safety-related work practices for employers to implement and provide a safe working area for employees relative to the hazards arising from the use of electricity.

What are the equipment labeling requirements?

Equipment labeling requirements are detailed in both the National Electrical Code (NEC) NFPA 70® as well as in the 2018 NFPA 70E®.

NEC® NFPA 70® states in 110.16:

"Electrical Equipment, such as switchboards, switchgear, panelboards, industrial control panels, meter socket enclosures, and motor control centers that is in other than dwelling occupancies and is likely to require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized shall be field marked or factory marked to warn qualified persons of potential electric arc flash hazards. The marking shall be located so as to be clearly visible to qualified persons before examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance of the equipment."

Equipment labeling is the responsibility of the employer when any electrical equipment must require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized.

The 2018 NFPA 70E® goes into further detail about the labeling requirements in Article 130.5 (H) Equipment Labeling:

Electrical Equipment such as switchboards, panelboards, industrial control panels, meter socket enclosures, and motor control centers that are in other than dwelling units and are likely to require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized shall be marked with a label containing the following information:

  1. Nominal system voltage
  2. Arc flash boundary
  3. At least one of the following:
    1. Available incident energy and the corresponding working distance, or arc flash PPE category in Table 130.7 (C)(15)(A)(b) or Table 130.7(C)(15)(B) for the equipment, but not both.
    2. Minimum arc rating of clothing.
    3. Site-specific level of PPE.

The viewing distances listed in this chart reflect the maximum viewing distance for the sign under favorable viewing conditions.
Favorable viewing conditions are those which allow for a clear, unobstructed view of the message on the sign. Examples of favorable viewing conditions are a bright lighting source over the sign, clear weather conditions, and a clear line of sight with no obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles and no other nearby signs creating distractions.
In unfavorable conditions, the sign is viewable at up to half the favorable distance. Unfavorable viewing conditions are those which make it difficult to read the message of the sign. Examples of this are poor lighting such as a dimly lit room, obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles, poor weather conditions, and other signs posted nearby which create a distraction.
It is the responsibility of the end user to determine the correct size, viewing distance, sign positioning, and sign size for your specific hazard. According to the ANSI Z535.2 sign standard, a ratio of 25 feet of viewing distance per inch of text height, under favorable viewing conditions, should be used to determine the size of your sign. Under unfavorable viewing conditions, such as in low light or for signs with complex messages, the ratio of viewing distance to text height is 12.5 feet to 1 inch.
