Hughes Environmental Announces New Service – Arc Flash Assessment

Hughes Environmental Earned A place on Inc. 5000 ListLOUISVILLE, KY (July, 2018) Hughes Environmental, a commercial duct cleaning and combustible dust remediation company, is pleased to announce that we are now offering Arc Flash Assessment. Arc Flash is a serious Life Safety issue and an Arc Flash Assessment is an essential part of a compliant electrical safety program.

An Arc Flash is an intense release of energy caused by an electrical arc fault between two conductors. The flash and ensuing blast result in a violent explosion that contains intense heat and energy. Equipment is often destroyed resulting in expensive replacement costs and downtime. Severe burns are the most common injury to workers and likely will result in permanent damage or death.

An Arc Flash Assessment is an engineering study of the electrical distribution system that is designed to identify and quantify the degree of hazard inside each electrical device. Identifying the degree of hazard allows the worker to choose the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when working on the energized panel, which includes testing and troubleshooting.
