An Arc Flash Analysis helps identify issues that may lead to an arc flash or blast. An arc flash or blast can release dangerous levels of heat energy, fire, molten materials, vaporized solids that can be inhaled, flying shrapnel and trigger the rapid expansion of air, all capable of causing severe and sometimes fatal injuries. To help reduce the risk of an arc flash or blast, and the associated injuries, a Rockwell Automation Arc Flash Analysis includes:
Rockwell Automation can perform problem remediation and updates to one-line diagrams following the assessment.
The foundation to any successful machine safety program is a risk assessment. Leading safety organizations including TUV, IEC, NFPA, ANSI and ASSE have recognized and promoted the benefits associated with performing risk assessments based on industry published methodologies. Today, safety-related standards and industry guidelines are being updated to reflect the need for conducting risk assessments. Your Rockwell Automation Risk Assessment will provide:
These exception-based assessments are a quick and inexpensive way to audit a machine /work cell to determine the obvious points of operation and power transmission hazards. The result of the hazard assessment is a concise report that identifies the location of each observed hazard and provides a rough budgetary estimate for safeguarding. The hazard assessment will also provide:
This assessment helps identify lockout/tagout issues that could lead to the unexpected release of hazardous energy during service and maintenance work. The LOTO Assessment includes training and hardware recommendations to improve your LOTO process. Improvements can be realized in risk reduction and overall LOTO time reduction.
