The purpose of this lecture is to raise awareness of electrical safety in the workplace with particular emphasis on arc flash hazard analysis and avoidance. This topic is the subject of IEEE Standard 1584 which has revolutionized aspects of electrical safety based on its sound principles and practical applications. Electrical safety basics will be presented including shock and burn hazards, injury statistics, system design considerations for safety, and effectiveness measures. Practical aspects of productivity versus safety requirements, particularly considering the use of personal protective equipment, will also be discussed. The lecture content will be minimally technical in nature and will focus heavily on the application issues through the use of photographs, videos, and verbal stories from the workplace that demonstrate the nature of the arc flash hazard, various mitigation options, and effective mitigation.
