An arc flash hazard is a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc. A hazard exists when employees are exposed to live electrical conductors or when performing routine tasks where electrical equipment is not correctly installed or properly maintained. An arc flash hazard analysis is a method to determine the risk of personal injury as a result of exposure to incident energy from an electrical arc flash.

Arc flash analysis is suitable for those looking to take every reasonable precaution to protect workers in a maritime environment from electrical hazards in accordance with workplace health and safety regulations.

BMT Fleet Technology has conducted arc flash analysis for a number of clients including the Canadian Coast Guard and non-naval customers. Its specialized maritime electrical team also conducts design and analysis of maritime electrical systems for government and commercial customers across Canada and North America.
