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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
