The European Approach to Electrical Arc Risk Assessment


Electrical arc, and the resulting arc flash, is one of the deadliest and least understood hazards of electricity, and is prevalent in many industrial situations. Although legislation requires businesses to perform risk assessments for all work activities, electrical arc is often overlooked because most people are unsure how to assess and manage this hazard effectively.

DuPont has developed a European approach to electrical arc risk assessment with a team of experts including DuPont Engineering Technology, DuPont Personal Protection, and external independent experts in electrical arc.

The result of this team effort is the DuPont™ Arc-Guide to help you understand, evaluate and reduce the severities and consequences of electrical arc hazards. This guide is organized into the “4P” approach: Predict, Prevent, Protect and Publish.
