Essentials Webinar: Arc Flash Risks, Causes and Management
AboutIn this webinar Michael Gibson from Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office will provide information and insights on the risks, causes and management of arc flash. As the Director of Field Services, Michael's key focus is on the promotion of education and training on all matters relating to electrical safety. He supports this through the development and delivery of evidence-based compliance and engagement programs which focuses on ESO’s priority areas
Arc flash or arc faults arise when current flows through the air between phase conductors or between phase conductors and neutral or ground. Put simply, an arc fault could be described as an unexpected, violent, electrical short circuit in the air that produces an arc and associated by-products.
With aging electrical assets and interference of electrical switchboards by third parties (e.g. telecommunication contractors), the risks associated with arc flash across urban water sector assets are increasing.
