Your Safety is Our Concern

ESCO’s mission, when it comes to safety, is to educate people in the electrical industry about workplace hazards, and how to avoid injury or death. Through an extensive training course which teaches the standards set forth by NFPA 70E, or through an audit of safety practices in the workplace, we give our clients information that can make the difference between life and death.

NFPA 70E Safety Training Course

Our NFPA 70E safety-training courses fulfill the training requirements associated with OSHA compliance. This course instructs those exposed to electrical hazards of the safety procedures and equipment outlined through OSHA requirements and NFPA 70E standards. Individuals will become familiarized with the use of risk assessment evaluation and the application of personal protective equipment (PPE) and clothing.

This course was developed by John Luke, President of ESCO Safety and a member of the NFPA 70E Technical Committee. His involvement with NFPA is what separates our material from the rest. We want everyone to go home safely each day, and we also want employers to avoid OSHA fines by having an informed staff. Our trainers make themselves available to answer questions and demonstrate compliance techniques.

Arc Flash Incident Energy Analysis

Five to ten victims of arc flash hazards are hospitalized daily; and as many as 80% of all electrical injuries are caused by arc flash. So, what is this powerful force that can change a life in an instant? Arc flash is often described as a short circuit through the air. It is a very hazardous situation associated with an explosive discharge of energy caused by an electric arc. Electric arcs can occur due to poor electrical contact or failed insulation. Such situations allow the passage of substantial amounts of current through the vaporized terminal material - usually metal or carbon. The arc flash comes from the heat and the light produced by the arc.

To determine the potential arc flash associated with exposed energized circuits, an arc flash incident energy analysis is required. This analysis calculates the intensity of the arc flash at various distances so a determination can be made regarding flash protection boundary distances and the type of PPE necessary while working in the area of the threat. Arc flash needs to be taken very seriously. Call us for more information.
