Risks Involved with Infrared Inspection of Electrical Systems
OSHA and the National Fire Protection Agency consider arc-flash the number one risk when working on energized electrical equipment. An arc-flash occurs when phase to phase or phase to ground contact is made resulting in a powerful blast containing molten metal and temperatures hotter than the sun.
Arc-flash risks is its highest while removing and re-installing electrical panel covers during an infrared inspection. We find that a lot of panels have broken fasteners and loose components that require extreme care and proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when handling them. Our trained and experienced inspection teams understand these risks and strive to make infrared inspections as safe as possible.
Brady Infrared works with licensed electricians to safely access your aging electrical equipment. Our inspection teams are trained and certified in arc-flash hazards, wear the proper protective arc-flash equipment, and have the knowledge and experience to safely access and work on older electrical systems.
