Central Arc Flash Safety Awareness Lunch and Learn

What is an Arc Flash? “Arc flash” is the extremely high-temperature discharge produced by an electrical fault in air – simply put, it’s an electrical explosion that occurs on energized equipment such as electrical panels that have been poorly maintained, improperly installed, or are at the end of their service life. An arc flash happens when electric current flows through an air gap between conductors. In order to maintain proper safety practices, it's imperative that contractors have a general awareness of arc flash and how to avoid it.



Join us for this FREE lunch and educational opportunity on Wednesday, April 21st in North Little Rock where our expert speaker will discuss critical information about arc flash safety and how to protect yourself and employees from potential hazards. 



We encourage all members and prospects to attend!
