Full text of press release:

Santa Clara, CA, United States, 05/27/2008 - Most of us know that the words "Arc Flash" mean something serious. But, most of us do not know how dangerous an Arc Flash can be. Attend this web seminar to understand what an Arc Flash is and safety standards you should follow to save lives.

Some things to consider are:

  • There are approximately 2,000 Arc Flash events that occur in the United States every year;
  • Temperatures can reach 35,000F in less than 1 second;
  • When copper vaporizes, a dynamite like explosion will occur.
  • So, now that we have your attention, Arc Flash events can be minimized and avoided if you understand safety standards and adhere to published requirements. Documents such as NFPA 70E can help save lives and avoid catastrophic incidents.

    Join us on Tuesday, June 3rd 2008 at 11:00 AM PDT (2:00 PM EDT) in this informative web seminar "Arc Flash Avoidance and NFPA 70E Compliance" to understand what an Arc Flash is and safety standards you should follow to save lives.

    Safe maintenance practices, knowing what to look for, thermal imaging of electrical switchgear using safe equipment and protective gear can all help.
