AVO Training Institute, a Megger® subsidiary, celebrates its 50th year keeping people safe from electrical hazards. The AVO Training Institute provides expertise in arc flash safety and preparedness, from our electrical safety certification courses to our expert instructors, some of who sit on the boards and committees of national safety organizations and helped write the standards. Our goal is to mitigate the hazards created by electrical equipment, and ultimately save lives. When it comes to your arc flash safety planning, contact the experts in the field - The AVO Training Institute.
How Did We Get Here?: Worker protection against arc flash incidents has a personal history all its own
In 1989, OSHA promulgated a much-needed regulation in the General Industry Regulations; 29 CFR 1910.147, the control of hazardous energy, or lockout/tagout. Analysis at the time indicated that more than 14,000 injury incidents were occurring annually in industry as a result of "accidental activation".
Protective Devices Maintenance and the Potential Impact on Arc Flash Energy.
Gain insight into electrical safety considerations as they relate to maintenance of electrical overcurrent protective devices, and the potential impact on the arc flash energy for shipboard electrical equipment and systems application.
Power Studies Overview
The AVO Training Institute's Electrical Engineering Division (EED) offers engineering studies that identify and mitigate the hazards created by electrical systems. The EED works with your maintenance team to identify the electrical areas of your facility including equipment, wiring and usage, to address fault points, inefficiencies and under/over powered areas that can lead to an arc flash event. Our Arc Flash analysis provides a clear outlay of your existing electrical system and identifies areas to address proactively that eliminate problems from occurring.
