ESA commissioned a major study on arc flash contaminants.  The full paper will be offered at the IEEE-ESW but a preview of the study is shown here. Hugh Hoagland, arc flash safety expert from e-Hazard.com and ArcWear.com did the study.  Hugh and his partners work on NFPA 70E and do arc flash training and offer the only Arc Flash Train the Trainer to offer high quality training materials to companies.
