Survey results will coincide with NFPA standards

Eaton recently announced that it has entered into an agreement with Weyerhaeuser, a forest products company, to perform electrical arc-flash surveys at a number of Weyerhaeuser’s industrial facilities as a part of an employee safety pilot program. The results from the engineering survey will include recommended safe working distances, required protective FR clothing, and calculations and procedures that follow the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard 70E for electrical safety requirements. The results will also be used to develop a list of personal protection equipment that’s required to meet NFPA standards.
