We are working on getting our equipment and ourslves up to speed for the standard, I thought is was supposed to come out in June? Does anyone have links for Arc Flash Hazard?

Thanks, this is a good forum.

Are you looking for a Canadian Standard or the NFPA 70E?

The Canadian standard from what I have heard is based on NFPA 70E, but yes, I am looking for the clothing requirements, the calculations for hazard assessment (0-5 I think)and requirements for each level of hazard. There are a bunch of courses available but I was looking for something on the net.

Thanks

I took a course in Ontario on the matter and it was based on the American Standard. Here is the website to view the standard.

NFPA70E

The Canadian Z-482 standard is due late this year or early in 2009. Until it is adopted the 70E standard does apply.
The Canadian standard should have much of the same material but there are some things that need a cold northern perspective. ;-)
