Flash is required!

In this HD video sponsored by Westex, the dangers of arc flash explosions are documented and explored.

Until recently, relatively little experimental data existed on the subject of industrial arc flashes. Westex decided to lead the way by conducting research to better understand arc flash hazards faced by industrial workers.

Learn how arc flashes happen, why it’s critical to comply with industry standards, and how the right flame resistant fabrics can keep your workers safe. Filmed in HD.
