Arc Flash U. is back for 2009
First Webcast in popular series will air LIVE on Feb. 26
Following last year’s extraordinary response to the introductory year of Arc Flash University, a new series of classes on how to prevent one of the plant floor’s deadliest incidents is back for another year.
Sponsored by GE, a series of four new Arc Flash University Webcasts will begin Thursday, Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. CST. The first of this year’s Arc Flash University classes looks at the human and economic costs behind Arc Flash prevention, and how can you use that information to help achieve compliance with regulations in your organization.
Arc Flash is an acknowledged plant hazard, yet each year it causes injury and death, costing companies valuable human and financial resources. The issues was cited by many Plant Engineering users in print and online as a major issue, and it prompted the creation of the first Arc Flash University series.
“We’ve always offered successful Webcasts, but the interest and information generated last year by Arc Flash University was unprecedented,” said Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra. “Because of the tremendous demand for this kind of information, we’re putting together four new Webcasts on the topic. We’re especially grateful to GE for again sponsoring this series. It demonstrates their commitment to addressing this important plant floor topic.”
Arc Flash University registrants who attend three of the four Webcasts will receive CEU credit, and can qualify to receive Arc Flash University merchandise.
Registration is now open for the 2009 Arc Flash University series at www.plantengineering.com .

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.
