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".

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.
