There are several calculation methods available to calculate arc flash risk in terms of incident energy, but until recently, there was no clear direction from OSHA about which calculation method was preferred. Because of this, several methods were used.
The new final ruling of OSHA 29 CFR Parts 1910 and 1926 provides recommendations for calculation methods to use for incident energy for equipment of different voltages. This webinar summarizes the ruling’s recommendations for incident energy calculations and the impact these recommendations may have on arc flash risk assessments from the perspective of a consultant engineer.
Watch this webinar to learn:
-An overview of current incident energy calculation methods
-Which incident energy calculation method OSHA recommends for certain equipment
-How OSHA recommendations for incident energy calculation methods may be incorporated into arc flash studies
