The EFCOG Electrical Safety Task Group has developed tools for use in completing a risk assessment to support operation of Overcurrent Protection Devices as described in NFPA 70E 2015. NFPA 70E recognizes arc flash hazards may exist even when equipment is in an enclosed condition. There are situations where opening or closing a switch or breaker has been a contributing factor to an arc flash event. This best practice provides guidance to establish the minimum level of Personal Protective Equipment for those who operate Overcurrent Protection Devices based on assessment of risk. Tools are provided to help the DOE complex assess risk associated with verification of proper installation, proper maintenance and evidence of impending failure which are the primary factors for consideration in the risk assessment.
