Brian shares his real-life experience of an arc flash.
His powerful story reminds us of the importance of wearing proper PPE.
Personal protective equipment has traditionally been designed and manufactured to fit most men. In the past, when women and smaller men were given PPE that did not fit properly, they either put up with the size differences or “rigged” the PPE to make it more usable. In 1999, OSHA  published a report titled, “Women in the[...]

IEEE Electrical Safety Workshop 2017

The IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) Electrical Safety Workshop (ESW) is dedicated to changing the electrical safety culture. The 2017 ESW will be held in Reno, Nevada, USA, January 31 to February 3, 2017, at the Peppermill Hotel. Mark your calendar now to save those dates.

The ESW is sponsored by the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Committee (ESafC). The scope of the ESafC is treatment for all matters within the scope of the IAS in which the emphasis or dominant factor specifically relates to occupational hazards of electrical energy. Topics include, but are not limited to: hazard phenomena, inherently safer design, work practices, hazard mitigation and electrical safety management. The ESafC has created subcommittees to help fulfil their mission.
