NFPA-70E – FR Apparel

It is estimated that 5 to 10 Arc Flash explosions occur every day in the United States resulting in 1 to 2 deaths. An Electric Arc results from the release of electrical energy through the air when high voltage exists across a gap between conductors. The arc flash is unpredictable and immediate, causing severe injury and burns. By following NFPA-70E standards, and with proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), injuries can be minimized.

An Arc Flash can cause minor injuries, 3rd degree burns and possibly death. However, with the appropriate flame resistant (FR) apparel that is properly arc rated to at least a baseline of HRC2 for daily wear and higher levels of protection (i.e. HRC3 or HRC4) for specific tasks, workers stand a much better chance of walking away with minimal or no injuries in the case of an Arc Flash explosion.
