Maritime arc flash hazard analysis

An arc flash hazard is a dangerous release of energy caused by an electric arc. These hazards exist when employees are exposed to live electrical conductors or when performing routine tasks where electrical equipment is not correctly installed or properly maintained.

An arc flash hazard analysis is used to determine the risk of personal injury as a result of exposure to incident energy from an electrical arc flash. It is suitable for customers that wish to take every reasonable precaution to protect workers in a maritime environment from electrical hazards in accordance with workplace health and safety regulations.

Our Electrical Engineering Team applies their extensive background in marine electrical systems and industry-recognized power analysis software to offer unique maritime arc-flash hazard analysis in North America to:

  • Ensure the risk is assessed in compliance with CSA Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety
  • Mitigate the risk to employees by recommending solutions that improve their safety

We’ve conducted arc flash analysis for many customers including the Canadian Coast Guard and non-naval customers. Our specialized maritime electrical team also designs and analyses maritime electrical systems for government and commercial customers across Canada and North America.
