Today we are demonstrating the importance of wearing arc flash protective clothing, with a real life case study. 


This is Eddies's story...


A few years ago, an operative was using a jackhammer when he struck a low voltage electrical cable, which led to an Arc Flash incident.


Fortunately, Eddie was wearing suitable arc flash clothing and PPE which ended up saving his life and protecting him from further and more significant injuries.

Clothing & Garments to Protect Against Arc Flash Dangers

Eddie Smith: “When the Arc Flash hit me – it went so fast. And then everything that happened after seemed to go in slow motion. There were these thoughts running through my head; the first one being my little boy, but also my family and my job, and worry about the physical injuries.


Stay safe and don’t compromise.
