Abschnitt 1 – 1 Scope

This information provides guidance for action in the appraisal of potential thermal hazards due to electric fault arcs associated with electrotechnical work on electrical equipment. Accordingly, this document affords employers an element of support in the selection of essential PPE.

This information is applicable for work performed on or in the vicinity of electrical equipment > 50 V AC.

Examples:

  • Household installations,

  • Power distribution circuits,

  • Industrial power systems.

The information contained herein does not address potential hazards associated with the side-effects of electric arcing, such as impact and acoustic shock or gases.

Neither does it apply to the use of electrical equipment conforming to pertinent guidelines or standards and having been designed or installed for use by unskilled persons.

NOTE:
The determinations made herein also apply to work performed on or in the vicinity of d. c. electrical equipment. Examination of the likely resulting energy and calculation formulas should be continued within the framework of continuing scientific research (see Section 3).
