We are an electric utility cooperative. If an AR (Flame Resistant, Arc Rated) t-shirt is worn that matches the hazard and the AR t-shirt is tucked in and an outer AR shirt is also worn, primarily for warmth, does the outer AR shirt have to be tucked in?  Can this cause a “ chimney effect” and cause arc facial burns to be worse from the arc coming up through the shirt to the face? A consultant trained our workers about this dangerous “chimney effect,” but it doesn’t make sense to us or to our management.    [...]

He fell approximately 12 feet. Because this incident is still under investigation, not many other details are provided here. More accurate details...  [...]

UPCOMING EVENTS

2017 Electrical Safety Workshop

The IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) Electrical Safety Workshop (ESW) is dedicated to changing the electrical safety culture. The 2017 ESW will be held in Reno, Nevada, USA, January 31 to February 3, 2017, at the Peppermill Hotel. Mark your calendar now to save those dates.

The ESW is sponsored by the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Committee (ESafC). The ESafC is responsible for all matters within the scope of the IAS in which the emphasis or dominant factor specifically relates to occupational hazards of electrical energy. Topics include, but are not limited to: hazard phenomena, inherently safer design, work practices, hazard mitigation and electrical safety management. The ESafC has created subcommittees to help fulfil their mission.
