Arc Flash

In 2000, the introduction of NFPA 70E led to the requirement that all Healthcare, Industrial and Commercial buildings must provide Arc Flash Hazard Analysis before a person approaches any exposed electrical conductor or circuit part that has not been placed in an electrically safe work condition. In 2009, the requirement was expanded to include equipment labeling for Arc Flash Hazard Labels at each piece of new and existing electrical distribution equipment. This requirement is intended to protect individuals who may come in contact with energized equipment. Since the introduction of the NFPA 70E, Miller-Pezzoni & Associates, Inc. has been spreading the word about the dangers Arc Flashes can pose to employees and their employers, and have been helping clients bring their facilities into compliance. Our Arc Flash Analysis services include:
