Arc Flash Hazard Awareness Course Safety Training

Course Overview

Arc flash burns account for the bulk of hospitalizations caused by electrical mishaps. In the Ontario, 255 workers were seriously burned from arc flash in the last 10 years. At three meters, arc flashes can be lethal (10 ft).

Temperatures may exceed 20,000°C (or 35,000° Farhenheit) when an electric current travels through air packed between two conductors. These conductors can be both grounded or ungrounded. Skin and clothes can both be burned due to being exposed to such high temperatures, thereby escalating the severity of the damage.

This training aims to make participants aware of the dangers of electricity consumption. No matter what level of experience you have, whether you are a seasoned journeyman or an engineer, student, or management, this training is for you.

CEUs: The AWWOA will award 0.3 CEUs to the registered participant upon course completion. Updated for 2018 Arc Flash rules, this training is now in compliance.
