Here at Bodyguard Workwear we understand the importance of having the correct PPE for your employees in order to carry out the responsibilities of their job role safely and to the best of their ability. ARC workwear including ARC protection trousers are leaders in the market. Electric arc flashes cause over 1,000 injuries and 25 deaths per year in the UK alone. It is, therefore, obviously critical for your safety to consider what type of protective workwear and PPE you need for yourself and your workforce when working near electrical components - consider everything including thermal base layers, arc flash trousers, disposable coveralls and PPE.
There are 2 types of ARC Flash - Confined flash & Open flash. Confined flashes occur in a distribution box or a motor control centre. The flash is contained on all sides, and all of the energy escapes through the opening at the front of the box onto the hands and face of the worker opening the box. Open flashes take place in an open space with energy escaping all around the area (360 degrees) in all directions. The molten metal can ignite and engulf the PC and PPE of the worker. This is where ARC Flash Workwear UK products including flame resistant sweatshirts and ARC Flash protection trousers can be so important to those working in those types of environments.
