Cut-Less is Serious Hand Protection against Electric Arc Risk

Arc flash, or electrical flashover, is considered one of the most deadly hazards of electricity. Often overlooked and misunderstood, arc flash is prevalent in most industries but industries at higher risk include utilities, hospitals, manufacturing companies, energy, mining, data centers and large leisure.

When working with electricity, there is always the hazard of arc flash. This severe electrical reaction can cause external burns to the skin, hearing damage, eye damage, knockback, injury from by flying debris and even death. Survivors of arc flash injuries may require extensive treatment and rehabilitation and the cost of these injuries can be extreme physically and financially.

As a last line of defense, proper personal protective equipment (PPE) can help prevent injury to the worker such as a quality pair of work safety gloves.

How Arc Flash Happens

Arc flashes typically happen when an electrical current or a conductor such as a bus bar or wire with another conductor, or an earthed surface inadvertently jumps from the desired electrical path and travels through the air from one conductor to another conductor. When this happens, anyone who might be in the vicinity or in the path of the discharge can be severely injured - or in some cases, even killed. Lightning is a perfect example of a natural arc flash.

Arc flashes occur around high voltage or current machinery for a few different reasons:

  •     Airborne dust particles can provide a path for electricity
  •     Worn through or thinning insulation
  •     Corroded contacts
  •     Dropped, misplaced or improperly used tools
  •     Accidental human contact due to inappropriate gloves or other PPE
  •     Improper or incomplete installation of equipment
