When you are working at a construction site, or with electricity in general, you will know that the propensity for an accident to happen is always high. Even though no worker or person wants to get electrocuted or hit with a shock on their body, sometimes these things happen. They may have done something wrong, or they may not have taken the proper precautions, and it resulted in them getting badly hurt. You do not want this to happen to anyone, let alone one of the people who is working on the site on your behalf. It is why Arc Flash training is so important.
If someone is working in construction, or they are joining your team, it is absolutely imperative for them to go through this training before they can begin working. And it is not only the people who are directly engaging with the electricity, but everyone who is working at the site, who has to go through this training. The reason why it is everyone is because you have to make sure each person on the site knows what they are doing in terms of the safety to prevent arc flash incidents.
These incidents are really serious. They are not only going to cause injury or serious damage to your employees and equipment, but you can potentially cause a fire on the site if you are not careful. And it is really not a matter of being overly careless or reckless. Sometimes you may not even do something particularly reckless, and you could trigger an incident. You did not mean for it to happen, but without the training, you did not know what was the right thing to do or not do in such a situation. So make sure everyone who is working at these sites has the training beforehand.
