Arc Flash Testing Video sponsored by Westex
Learn how arc flashes happen, why it’s critical to comply with industry standards, and how the right flame resistant fabrics can keep your workers safe.
In this HD video sponsored by Westex, the dangers of arc flash explosions are documented and explored.
Until recently, relatively little experimental data existed on the subject of industrial arc flashes. Westex decided to lead the way by conducting research to better understand arc flash hazards faced by industrial workers.
Learn how arc flashes happen, why it’s critical to comply with industry standards, and how the right flame resistant fabrics can keep your workers safe. Filmed in HD.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
