It is estimated that between five and ten arc flash explosions occur every single day. Arc flash hazards have not been fully recognized by many businesses and their employees. Though many people are impacted by electrical accidents that occur from working with energized equipment, electricity continues to be a major cause of death among workers. Training in arc flash and arc blast protection has not been addressed in many employer safety programs, so arc flash hazards are often not managed properly, contributing to the nearly 17,000 injuries a year associated with arc flash accidents.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 it is the responsibility of employers to keep a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. The U.S Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration's role is to assure safe conditions are provided for employees by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, education and assistance. OSHA can issue citations when death or physical harm is likely to result from arc flash hazards that the employee knew about, or should have known about.

Serious consequences can result when electrical safeguards are not provided or used to protect workers from arc flash hazards. Arc flash can injure or kill almost instantly, which makes it extremely vital that workers be properly trained and have the proper equipment before electrical work is performed, and that electrical equipment is de-energized.

Arc flash compliance is serious business. Companies can be fined staggering amounts of money if employees are injured or killed due to arc flash accidents. Repeatedly failing to comply with OSHA citations could lead to arrest and incarceration. Employers who expose their workers to arc flash hazards can be held responsible for not keeping workers safe. Establishing an effective arc flash safety program is a critical part of every facility.
