CEU Exam: June 23 Webcast

Arc Flash Session Two: Safeguarding your Investment in Arc Flash Safety

Designing and implementing programs to protect workers from electric arc flash hazards can involve significant upfront costs. This presentation looks at 3 critical considerations to help assure your investment in financial and staff resources will deliver the desired results for worker safety over time. The tips and techniques provided are derived from Lanny Floyd’s 30+ years experience in designing, implementing and managing workplace electrical safety programs. It includes insight in how to monitor the quality of your program and how to integrate aspects of the following standards to help assure a robust and sustainable arc flash safety program:

  • NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace
  • IEEE 1584, Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations
  • ANSI Z10, Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems
  • NFPA 70B, Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance
  • IEEE 3007.2, Recommended Practice for Maintenance of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems
  • IEEE 3007.3, Recommended Practice for Electrical Safety of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems

You must get 6 out of 8 questions correct to pass the CEU exam. You can take the exam as many times as you'd like.

Question 1 *

Plants should invest in arc flash safety. This includes which of the following?

Equipment labeling
Power consumption measurement
Worker training
Both equipment labeling and worker training
Question 2 *

True or false: Section 130.3 of the NFPA 70E states that an arc flash analysis should be done and will last five years without further adjustments to the program.

True
False
Question 3 *

Arc-resistant switchgear:

Prevents arcing faults
Directs arc energy away from personnel
Can only be installed in equipment under 480V
Question 4 *

Inherently safer designs for electrical monitoring can:

Eliminate the need to open cabinets
Eliminate arc flash risk
Among other things, reduce the frequency and magnitude of arcing faults
Question 5 *

What does NOT affect the severity of arc hazards?

The level of PPE used by the worker
Transformer kVa
Circuit breaker setting
Fuse type and size
Question 6 *

True or false: PPE is an example of engineering controls.

True
False
Question 7 *

Circuit breakers must function as designed. If not:

A higher level of PPE must be used
70E requires arc resistant switchgear MUST be used
The thermal energy released can be much greater than expected
Question 8 *

Which group or organization does NOT help set standards for electrical safety?

ANSI
OSHA
IEEE
NFPA
