The BLS report was released December 2017. A total of 5,190 workers died from an occupational injury in 2016. That number increased by 7 percent from 2015 and is the highest count since 2008. This is the third consecutive increase in annual workplace fatalities and the first time more than 5,000 fatalities have been recorded by the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) since 2008[...]

A harness is worn to protect the worker from falls, but it isn’t considered apparel and is not part of the arc rated body protection as specified in OSHA 1910.269(l)(8), “Protection from flames and electric arcs.” According to OSHA 1910.269 and Subpart V, personal fall arrest equipment is required to be arc tested but not technically arc rated[...]

To look at Arc Blast and how it could relate to PPE, ArcWear and e-Hazard researched another paper this year measuring the force (N) on an impact plate from a door ejected by an arc blast. This is not yet published but will be presented at the 2019 IEEE Electrical Safety Workshop[...]

e-Hazard Partner Bill Shinn will speak at the Wyoming Region VIII VPPPA Safety Conference on the 7 Electrical Safety Habits on May 9 at 10:45 a.m.

Answers from the Experts
The e-Hazard Forum
Where in the NEC is panel labeling required? What must be on the label?

Is it a good idea to wear arc flash clothing where just shock hazards are present, or is that overkill?

How do you label arc-resistant switchgear? Table 130.7(C)(9) shows Cat 0 for operations with the doors closed, but if you've done an IE analysis, you're not supposed to use Table 130.7(C)(9). The IE analysis does not consider whether or not the switchgear is arc-resistant. 

If you calculate an IE of 5 cal/cm², do you need Cat 2* or 5 cal/cm² rated PPE to operate a breaker or is Cat 0 adequate?
