Arc flash incidents occur all too often and impact many lives; the remnants of the event may last forever. To address the problem in the industry we turn to codes and standards. NEC 240.87 is an important leap in arc flash safety for the electrical industry. Eaton will clarify and dissect the new standards including options you should consider.
You’ll experience Jim Dollard, safety coordinator IBEW Local 98, and his passion for safety resulting from his years of experience as a safety coordinator for Local 98 in Philadelphia. You’ll see how he translated his passion due to his direct involvement on NFPA 70E, “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace” and NFPA 70, “the National Electrical Code”, and his knowledge of codes and standards into an installation requirement that directly addresses the arc flash issues of workers today. You’ll also meet Ken White, retired from Olin, who leveraged one of the fastest arc reduction solutions on the market today that helped reduce the impact of what could have been a devastating event during a project in his facility. Ken’s experience helps all of us understand how the NEC and technology can help save lives.
Attendees will learn:
- New code requirements including NEC 2014 Section 240.87.
- Various arc reduction technologies and appropriate application selection criteria.
- Viewers will hear from safety coordinator, Jim Dollard, who originally proposed NEC Section 240.7. Jim will share his vision of safety and the NEC and hear how important Section 240.87 is to those who work in and around electrical equipment.
- Viewers will hear Ken White talk about how technology played an important role in maintaining safety in his facility.
