November 20, 2013 – Released by ERI Safety Videos, the Electrical Arc Flash Safety Awareness DVD—which we initially reported on in June 2013—is now available in both English and French. This 25-minute program is based on the standards for arc flash in Canada.

The dual hazards of electric shock and arc flash are explained and highlighted with arc flash footage, full-scale explosions and reenactments of flammable clothing ignition due to arc flash incidents. Topics covered in this program include qualified electrical worker requirements, creating an electrically safe working condition, confirming a zero energy state, energized electrical work permits, approach boundaries, incident energy level, arc flash boundaries, hazard risk categories and how to properly dress for arc flash protection.
