Integrated Consulting Engineers, Inc. specializes in arc flash hazard analysis and evaluations for electrical systems. Our mission is to provide the most accurate information regarding potential incident energy release during an arc fault condition, ensure the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is identified, and establish arc flash boundaries for employees and independent contractors working on electrical equipment.
An arc flash analysis is used to comply with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 70E, with respect to PPE recommendations and arc flash protection boundaries.
Compliance with NFPA Standard 70E will reduce the legal and financial liability of an employer or building owner, improve safety, and provide a safer working environment for employees.
Statistics have indicated that five to ten arc explosions occur in electrical equipment everyday. Arc flash events have the potential to cause serious injury or even fatality. Medical costs for severe electrical burns can exceed $4 million per person. The indirect costs to the building owner that include litigation, fines, equipment costs can be as high as $10 million.
Integrated Consulting Engineers utilizes the NFPA Standard 70E, in conjunction with arc flash hazard analysis software, to provide a complete and thorough arc flash study of your facility. Our staff of licensed professional engineers provides information, products, and services to establish safety compliance in facilities that are not only recognized by OSHA and the Joint Commission, but are also compliant with state and federal requirements.
