Arc flash clothing and protection equipment including coveralls, gloveshelmetsface shields and general head-to-toe PPE (arc flash coveralls) is used to protect against flashover but will not prevent arc flash hazards.

Consequently, PPE should be used as the last line of defence when implementing a documented electrical safety plan for maintenance, repair and diagnostic procedures involving energised LV, MV or HV electrical equipment.

Companies should start by minimising exposure to risk. Once that has been done then operatives should be aware of the company’s safe operating procedures that are designed to reduce the risk still further. PPE should be used as the last line of defence when implementing a documented electrical safety plan for maintenance, repair and diagnostic procedures involving energised LV, MV or HV electrical equipment.
