Keep Workers Safe, Avoid Costly Fines With Preventive Training and Equipment
Earlier this month, three Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) maintenance workers were injured by an arc blast at a substation in downtown Chicago. Two of the workers were initially in critical condition while the third worker was stable.
OSHA fined Tesla, Inc. more than $110,000 this month after nine serious safety citations. The violations were related to an incident from December 2017, when an employee received a high-voltage electrical shock at a solar energy plant in Massachusetts, resulting in burn injuries.
With remote racking and switching equipment and the proper training, situations like these can be avoided. Here at CBS ArcSafe, we know there is only one way to avoid arc-flash dangers: Distance is Safety.
Let us help you make your facility as safe as possible.
