According to OSHA, “Safety related work practices shall be employed to prevent electric shock or other injuries resulting from either direct or indirect electrical contact.” * This OSHA rule helps to enforce national guidelines regarding Arc Flash Protection.
All Piper Electric Co., Inc. employees must wear arc flash protectors or arc flash personal protective equipment, also known as PPE, when working with devices, machinery or circuitry that have live electrical connections, in accordance with the OSHA Standard. The level of PPE depends on the level or risk. All employees receive training in the use of PPE, which includes what conditions or locations make the equipment necessary, how to properly wear PPE and knowledge of arc flash protector maintenance. At Piper Electric Co., Inc. our number one priority is to get our employees home safe every night.
