An arc flash happens when electric current flows through an air gap between conductors. Accidents caused by touching a test probe to the wrong surface or slipped tool are the most
common cause of an arcing fault. Arc flashes can also be caused by dust, corrosion or other impurities on the surface of the conductor.
A typical arc flash incident can be inconsequential but could conceivably easily produce a more severe explosion. The result of the violent event can cause destruction of equipment
involved, fire, and injury not only to an electrical worker but also to bystanders. Ritz Safety offers a wide array of Arc Flash protection from Arc blankets, coveralls, head-to-toe
protection & more.
