Arc Flash Study IEEE 1584-2002
Good Enough for a Post IEEE 1584-2018 Risk Assessment?
In this executive summary Marcelo E. Valdes P.E. shares a methodology he developed that organizations can use to assess whether PPE selections made based on IEEE 1584-2002 are still suitable, given the new approach to arc flash calculations used in IEEE 1584-2018.
Fortunately, organizations can evaluate their concerns about PPE and worker risk with assessment methodologies that require only a few known variables. This analysis may clarify whether existing PPE practices are adequate or whether more attention is required.
