It's really a great video. Electrical safety is the most important. I think, safety is the lack of accidents. Thanks for sharing such a nice video.

If any of you guys in western Canada are interested in a great arc flash safety course, I have a contact who put on a course for us last year and did an amazing job. 30 of us sat through a 2 day course and there was hundreds of years of experience in that room and we all learned a ton, were terrified at spots and by the end, we all truly understood the hazards in what we do every day and take for granted. Great course and a real eye opener for all of us. I'll forward his number to anyone interested.

He was also very entertaining and the course flowed really well. We went through all the PPE, flash calculations and safety procedures. Stuff every electrician, apprentice to journeyman, should learn.

Thanks Steve, I'll see if the company will foot the bill.

Zog is also one the experts on the subject here, and he gave me some info, which I gave to a manager.

I seemed to upset some of the suits with my concerns

But hey, I don't care. If they fire me I still have my Resi work

If I find the stuff Zog gave me, I'll post it here.

i found grasping the calories, zones juxtaposed to aic a tad hard

but not impossible

i would , however, point out that there is a sense of false secuirty associated with an arc flash suit

as it's protection is finite.

The thing to keep in mind, is that past a certain level of flash energy, even the proper PPE may protect you from burns, but will NOT LEESEN THE CONCUSSION INJURIES FROM THE EXPLOSIVE FORCE AND/ OR SHRAPNEL.

However, you DO want to were the PPE to protect you, as best it can, if you must work hot. It is almost always a better plan to turn off high arc flash potential equipment before working on or in it.

I hate that overused "Safety is No Accident" slogan, should have been retired years ago. It give me the feeling that the safety folks are mindless droids.
