ELECTRICAL HAZARD APP Developed Electrical Hazard Classification Tool Application E-Safe Basic - http://apps.ctc.com/esafe- basic/http://apps.ctc.com/esafe- basic/ E-Safe Pro - http://apps.ctc.com/esafe-pro/http://apps.ctc.com/esafe-pro/
ELECTRICAL HAZARD APP The application is intended to be utilized by TRAINED and QUALIFIED personnel who must design, repair or install potentially hazardous electrical equipment in the performance of their duties. It is not intended as a stand-alone electrical safety guide, rather as a single part in larger overall system safety analysis. Additional training may be required as deemed adequate by supervisory staff.
ELECTRICAL HAZARD APP PPE presented in this app is based on the task tables from NFPA-70E 2012, NEC and IEEE Refereed Articles. For Tri-Services (US Army Corps of Engineers, Navy-Marines & Air Force) facilities electrical (VAC) work, consult your AHJ to determine if the principal reference for shock and arc flash boundary analysis is the UFC 3-560-01 dated May 2012.
ELECTRICAL HAZARD APP Begin by selecting a source of energy from the list below. You will then be prompted to enter more information about the electrical system. 60 Hz Power DC Capacitor Battery Sub RF (1Hz - 3kHz)
