The Best Safety Glasses and Equipment for Arc Flash Protection and PPE

According to data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5 to 10 arc flash explosions occur in electric equipment across the United States each day. Facilities with dense power structures and high levels of potential energy tend to have prime conditions for arc flash events, including substations, data centers, and similar environments. An arc flash releases a significant amount of electrical energy and occurs because of equipment failure contamination, dust, dropped tools and corrosion equipment failure, inadvertent contact with energized parts, dropped tools and several other causes.
