This test method is intended for determining the heat attenuation factor (HAF) of a shield material and the effective heat attenuation factor (EHAF) at the location of the worker in a specific test set up. These shields are used by some utilities for switching padmount gear when it may have an arc flash potential and...

Many people think of a refinery as a potential place for a flash fire, and many would have thought this hazard had been “engineered out” at this location. Here is how things happen. Most of the engineering out of the hazard is for operations, but maintenance can often bypass, or render ineffective, the safety engineering....
