Arc Flash Safety Training

Arc Flash Safety Training is an important safety training course. An Arc Flash is a phenomenon where a flashover of electric current leaves its intended path and travels through the air from one conductor to another, or to a ground. The results are often violent. When a human is in close proximity to the Arc Flash, serious injury and even death can occur. It’s not uncommon for an injured employee to never regain their past quality of life. Extended medical care is often required, sometimes costing in excess of $1,000,000.

R2M Engineering worked with leaders and industry experts to develop an Arc Flash safety training course that not only meets the standard training requirements, but helps employees to understand the ways that incidents can happen to them and how to prevent them.
