arc flash hazard analysis (AFHA)

Any engineer with a computer and a software can run an arc flash analysis. But, our experienced and knowledgeable engineers, will determine the right scenarios, settings, system configurations, and other critical aspects that will deliver a better solution for your arc flash project. The following is a list of our capabilities:

  • More than 400 studies for more than 200 companies
  • More than 15 years of experience
  • Deep knowledge of IEEE-1584 and NFPA 70E standards
  • Owners of several SKM Power*Tools software licenses, with enough buses and modules to ensure the correct analysis of virtually any electrical system
  • Profound knowledge of Power*Tools software and its capabilities
  • IEEE and NFPA members

 

On-line Survey

The accuracy of an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis relies in the accuracy of the one-line diagram. AMPSAFE has developed a system to insure the best data collection with the use of state of the art hardware and software. Some of our system features that make us better:

  • One-step data collection with the use of the most powerful tablets, using the software Power*Tools developed by SKM.
  • The use of Power*Tools prevents errors and miss-interpretations
  • Highly trained electrical engineers, who have both field experience and theory preparation
  • Backup of all the field work with high quality, well organized photographic evidence
  • Direct supervision of a licensed electrical professional engineer (i.e. P.E.)
  • Extensive database of protective devices libraries
  • Proven years of experience with 100% client satisfaction

arc flash hazard mitigation

After the arc flash hazard analysis is completed, the next step is to find easy ways to mitigate the incident energy, lowering the risk and the need of PPE. Our specialists have extensive experience in providing a comprehensive and practical mitigation analysis that consists of:

  • Identify incident energy mitigation opportunities
  • Mitigate high arc flash incident energies considering the implications and limitations of changing overcurrent protective device’s setting or ratings
  • Create different scenarios and analysis of “what if” situations
  • Write a comprehensive and easy to read reports and explanations

arc flash labels

They are the best way to communicate the qualified employees of the risks they might face while interacting with electrical equipment and components. We only use state of the art, high quality labels. These are some of their features:

  • Labels come with an NFPA/OSHA/NEC/ANSI compliant design
  • Last 5 years outdoors
  • Resistant to chemicals, water and UV light
  • Die cut gloss vinyl
  • Pre-printed headers

arc flash training

The best arc flash hazard analysis, the best labels, and the best electrical safety program will not be complete if the personnel is not properly trained to recognize and avoid the risks implicit when working with electrical equipment. AmpSAFE, LLC can deliver excellent training because:

  • Our courses and seminars are designed to create a profound impact on the worker
  • They are designed to be perfectly understandable for personnel with any level of education
  • They include extensive use of images, videos and real life situation making our courses comprehensive and illustrative
  • Our instructors have been trained to train, and have proven abilities to communicate complex topics on a simple manner
  • AMPSAFE has delivered hundreds of training seminars to thousands of electrical workers, and we have always receive positive comments and feedback
