The results of an arc flash burn are devastating and should be avoided at all costs by thoroughly training your employees and preparing your workplace with the necessary precautions. The deadly temperature of an arc flash can reach as high as 35,000 degrees Fahrenheit!
Through proper training with one of our NFPA 70E trainers, we can reduce the chance of an arc flash occurring by using engineering controls, administrative controls and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Our arc flash training will cover what an arc flash is, why they occur, what OSHA requires (OSHA 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1910 Subpart S), prevention methods, proper labeling according to Section 110.16 of the 2008 National Electrical Code, appropriate tools/equipment and how to calculate for the degree of an arc flash hazard.

AWARE is an oil and gas specific training that helps attendees to recognize and control health and safety hazards while onsite.
Employees are getting injured or killed each year while working in confined spaces and an estimated 60% of the fatalities have been deaths that occur during a rescue. Oftentimes what happens is that an employee attempts to rescue the entrant without the proper training and then gets caught themselves.

In this training, we will cover permit vs. non-permit required confined spaces, what hazards are encountered in a confined space, the hazardous conditions that would prevent entry, how to respond to a crisis emergency, what personal protective equipment (PPE) needs to be worn, procedural requirements, responsibilities/roles of team members and thorough training on how to recognize symptoms of overexposure of air contaminants.
