If you own a commercial or industrial facility, you need a commercial electrician to provide a safety evaluation of your electrical system. This is called an arc flash study. It is an on-site evaluation that identifies the parts of your electrical system, any potential points of failure or risk, and areas for improvement.
What Does an Arc Flash Study Examine?
An electrician performing this service checks how much energy is available at different devices and points in your electrical system, where employees could potentially be exposed.
As part of this process, they'll label equipment and circuits for ease of reference. They may also go over any safety documentation you have and help you develop a plan in case of electrical incidents.
How Does This Benefit Your Business?
This commercial electrical service offers you a chance to update any damaged or improperly configured electrical systems in your building. This makes it safer for workers, so you will be compliant with OSHA guidelines and will be less liable in case of an employee injury.
They can further improve the site's safety by recommending personal protective equipment (PPE) to be used in certain areas of your facility, and by helping you formulate an emergency response so you can respond quickly to electrical shorts and accidents.
Finally, periodic inspections, such as arc flash studies, help you identify budding problems before they become severe, so you can repair them at minimal cost before they cause injuries or property damage.
