Arc Flash Hazards Quiz

Ferraz Shawmut, a maker of circuit protection products for industry and the electrical market, is challenging industry members to test their knowledge of Arc Flash Hazards with its newest online Protection Intelligence Quotient (P.IQ) quiz. Participants can access the quiz online. Each month through the end of 2009, three winners receive a $100 gas card. (No purchase is necessary to enter.)

Arc flash incidents can cause injury and be very expensive.

The monetary cost of a single arc flash incident can exceed a million dollars per incident, including medical expenses and the cost of equipment replacement, downtime, and insurance, according to Ferraz Shawmut. “The explosive energy of an arcing fault sends more than 2,000 workers to burn centers every year. In most cases, these could have been prevented with the proper knowledge of arc flash hazards & prevention,” says Stephen Colvin, vice president of marketing at the company.

The Arc Flash Hazards topic is the third quiz Ferraz Shawmut has had online this year. The first addressed solar power circuit protection, and the other tested knowledge on overvoltage protection. Archived versions of the tests are available at http://us.ferrazshawmut.com/PIQarchive.
