More than 2,000 people are hospitalized every year for severe arc flash injuries, resulting in an average of 400 fatalities each year. Fatalities in the electrical industry are ten times more likely than in general industry. Unfortunately, many facility managers don’t take preventative measures until after a devasting arc flash incident causes injury, death, and often huge liability judgments against the company.
