Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

Arc flash studies are required by OSHA to establish safe boundaries for your personnel working in proximity to electrical equipment. The study measures the potential impact of an electrical explosion or ‘arc flash’ that occurs when a short circuit or electrical fault causes current to flow through the air.

Your Enviros electrical team is ready to assist with your electrical system analysis and arc flash studies to ensure safe and uninterrupted operations of your facilities. We help determine the proper requirements of a power system through comprehensive facility assessments and perform system modeling as well as detailed analyses of present and future load requirements.

Process + Priorities:

  • Conditions Inspection
  • Infrared Panel Scanning
  • Equipment Inventory
  • One Line Diagrams
  • SKM Modeling

NFPA 70-E, The Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace, and OSHA require all facilities to conduct an arc flash hazard analysis every three years to maintain accurate warning labels and confirm system functionality. The Enviros team has demonstrated expertise in the application of NFPA-70E and IEEE 242-2001 guidelines and completes arc flash analysis on over two million square feet annually.

Electrical Health Assessment

Proactive and ongoing assessment of your facility’s electrical system and equipment provides peace of mind, helps ensure worker safety, and mitigates the risk of operational disruptions due to unplanned outages. The Enviros Electrical team is comprised of highly experienced and certified professionals – including electricians and electrical inspectors – with the training to safely pull panels to identify and resolve your electrical system issues.

Infrared Scanning

Thermal imaging helps identify electrical issues signified by excess heat. Infrared cameras, also known as thermal imagers, visually represent varying surface temperatures of equipment to find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components. Increased resistance and heat are the primary reasons most electrical components fail. Loose connections, imbalanced and/or overloaded circuits, defective breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses, and material defects are detectable by an infrared inspection. Your certified Enviros thermographers utilize industry leading tools identifying electrical issues and pinpointing root causes prior to failure. Annual inspections of your electrical system are recommended as part of your preventative maintenance program.

The Power of Thermography 

Infrared scanning is a non-contact and nondestructive testing method that can quickly identify possible issues across a large volume of electrical equipment without the need for system shutdowns.

Physically inspecting and tightening electrical components is time-consuming and subject to human errors or oversights. Infrared inspection can also identify faulty items not generally uncovered during a physical inspection. Infrared scanning produces thermal images that clearly highlight hotspots, pinpointing issues before they lead to an unscheduled outage, equipment damage, or fire. The efficiency of thermography improves accuracy and reduces costs while maintaining the reliability and safety of your electrical systems.

Thermography Benefits:

  • Does not require system shutdowns
  • Quickly identifies electrical systems problems
  • Reduces downtime and equipment damage
  • Prevents costly or catastrophic system failures
  • Allows your team to plan and prioritize repairs
  • Maximizes the effectiveness of your preventive maintenance program
