Data has become the cornerstone of daily life, making data centers a crucial infrastructure. Modern data centers are energy-hungry, and competition for efficiency and reliability is fierce. Microprocessors run billions of commands, generating substantial heat that is detrimental to both efficiency and reliability. Electrical supply problems such as voltage dips, power outages, and harmonics can be catastrophic to any data center and can hamper anything from a simple transaction like online shopping to a major event that could even influence security [...]


Confusion on the difference between an arc-rated (AR) garment and a flame-resistant (FR) garment still exists. Let’s make the terms “arc-rated” and “flame-resistant” a bit simpler to understand. The language concerning the labeling of personal protective equipment (PPE) changed in the 2012 NFPA 70E. What people had referred to[...]

At this year's IEEE Electrical Safety Workshop Mike Doherty will be co-presenting with Behzad Esmaeili, PhD, an assistant professor at the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA on The Impact of Human Performance in the Electrical Construction Sector [...]


A sign hanger was involved in a billboard electric shock accident February 2018. Two sign hangers working for Outfront Media were working 25 feet above ground, installing a vinyl sign in Los Angeles. One of the metal poles used to place the sign touched the energized high-voltage line above the work area. One of the[...]


An  OSHA Letter of Interpretation explains the term “continuous industrial process .”

Scenario - A manufacturing company that makes industrial control panels for a variety of their customers has a testing area in their manufacturing facility where control panels are energized and tested. The rated voltage and frequency of control panels vary from 120-600VAC. Rated frequency varies from 50-60Hz. There are dedicated testing personnel who carry out functional testing on these panels on a day-to-day basis[...]

On some of the labels I have reviewed, the arc flash boundary was consistently listed as 18" regardless of the Incidence energy level which was less than 1.2 cal/Cm 2 . Why wouldn't the actual distance calculated be used rather than a "default" 18"? I understand that the 18" distance is the working distance used for calculations but the hands and arms are going to be closer. [...]
