Arc-Flash Hazard Assessment & Update - CANCELLED
November 29 30, 2022
Venue:DoubleTree by Hilton Spokane City Center
Who Should Attend:
Utility engineers, staking technicians, lineworkers, superintendents, and early-career engineers.
IEEE Standard 1584 was updated in late 2018 and significant changes were made that could change the PPE used by electric utilities. These changes include elimination of the exception for transformers below 125 kVA and elimination of the 85% rule. Further, the calculation now includes more shape factors for arcs that are considered to be enclosed in switchgear or similar enclosures. The new calculations are more accurate, but present challenges for electric utilities. In this course you will also learn about the following: Arc Flash Hazard Analysis
Safety in the workplace
National Electric Safety Code (NESC)
Overcoming the bulletproof mindset
Arc flash calculation methods
Guidelines for performing arc flash assessments
Enclosure size correction factor
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Pacific Time on day one, and the class will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on both days. Lunch and refreshments will be provided on both days.
