Start with the NFPA 70E. In michigan you can go to a 70E compliance course that covers everything you need to know for a company to comply with the 70E http://www.epowerplus.com/training.htm

(No I dont have any $$ ties to them)

They have a class for exactly what you are looking for, its 2 days and designed for managers designing a safety program, I should know, I wrote the course.

I would be happy to answer any specific questions you have.

What kind of arc flash protection would you need in a residential 200a service enclosure?

US Navy's arc flash policy is public, and might give you some good stuff to steal from. A recap of poliy and the relevant documents are noted at the bottom of this advisory:
