Extreme Safety , a specialist in arc flash protection equipment has launched a new educational website on the topic of arc flash.
Scripted and designed by Arc Flash experts from around the globe, the new website offers a ground-up explanation of PPE and safety equipment selection for arc flash protection.
The Arc Flash site also has a variety of videos, which can be used to educate staff or even senior management on the issues around arc flash risks.
Business Development Manager, Andre Borell explains that while people know about arc flash and personal protective equipment required to protect staff from the dangers of arc flash, they do not fully understand arc flash – they just know it’s dangerous and need to do something.
Since Extreme Safety has been dealing with the topic for over 10 years, it was decided a website on arc flash would be the best way to share some of their knowledge.
The site can also be used as a tool to educate employees within organisations, or even sell the importance of the issue to management. The site is designed to be informative as well as persuasive on the issue of arc flash and will help safety officers or engineers convince their management that arc flash studies and safety equipment are a worthwhile investment.
The site is designed for community and industry contributions, which can be uploaded to help improve the site and its resource base. Andre encourages anyone who has conducted an arc flash study or has any useful arc flash content to use the submissions page on the site.
