Arc Flash Work Safety: Understanding Hazard Risk Categories

March 5th, 2011

The 2009 edition of NFPA 70E requires employers to label any electrical equipment likely to require maintenance or examination while energized with clearly visible warning labels that alert personnel to the hazard before they can be ex

p

osed to it. The most common way of doing so is to list a HRC (Hazard Risk Category) of required personal protective gear needed to service the equipment in question. So what does this mean?

Hazard Risk Category is defined within NFPA 70E as a general classification of hazard involved in performing specified tasks. HRC typically ranges from zero to four, with zero denoting minimum-risk activities and four denoting high-risk activities. Each category includes minimum safety equipment required, the minimum number of layers required to meet this requirement, and the minimum arc rating of all required equipment in cal/cm2. The arc rating, in turn, is a value of the energy required to pass through a given material and cause a 50% probability of second to third degree burns. Arc ratings from multiple layers are not cumulative.

Hazard Risk Category 0 (HRC 0)

Minimum Clothing Requirements: In order to qualify as covered under HRC 0, a long-sleeved shirt and long pants made from natural fibers (untreated cotton, silk, wool, rayon, or blends of these fibers), with a

minimum fabric weight of cheap viagra canada 4.5 ounces per square yard, is required. Polyester, poly/cotton blends, and other artificial fibers are not permitted, as they will melt in an arc flash incident, increasing the potential damage.

Additional PPE Equipment: Employees in HRC 0 situations are also required to at minimum be wearing leather safety shoes, safety glasses, and a hard hat.

Minimum Layer Requirements: HRC 0 only requires one layer of protective clothing.

Minimum Arc Rating in cal/cm2: None. HRC 0 has no minimum requirements on arc rating of material.

Hazard Risk Category 1 (HRC 1)

Minimum Clothing Requirements: In order to qualify as covered under HRC 1, an employee must at minimum wear one of the following: denim jeans and a flame-resistant long-sleeved shirt, OR a flame-resistant long-sleeved sirt and pants, OR flame-resistant coveralls.

Additional PPE Equipment: Employees in HRC 1 situations are also

required to at minimum be wearing leather safety shoes, safety glasses, and a hard hat with an arc-rated face shield.

Minimum Layer Requirements: HRC 1 only requires one layer of protective clothing.

Minimum Arc Rating in cal/cm2: 4 cal/cm2

Hazard Risk Category 2 (HRC 2)

Minimum Clothing Requirements: In order to qualify as covered under HRC 2, an employee must at minimum wear one of the following: flame-resistant long-sleeved shirt and pants, OR flame-resistant coveralls.

Additional PPE Equipment: Employees in HRC 2 situations are also required to at minimum be wearing leather safety shoes, safety glasses, and a hard hat with an arc-rated face shield. In certain circumstances, an 8+-cal/cm2 stocking hood or multi-layer switching hood may also be required.

Minimum Layer Requirements: HRC 2 requires one to two layers of protective clothing.

Minimum Arc Rating in cal/cm2: 8 cal/cm2

Hazard Risk Category 3 (HRC 3)

Minimum Clothing Requirements: In order to qualify as covered under HRC 3, an employee must at minimum wear one of the following: a multi-layer flash suit over FR long-sleeved shirt and pants over natural fiber short-sleeved T-shirt and pants, OR a multi-layer flash suit over FR coveralls over natural fiber short-sleeved T-shirt and pants.

Additional PPE Equipment: Employees in HRC 3 situations are also required to at minimum be wearing leather safety shoes, safety glasses, hard hat, hearing protection, and a multi-layer switching hood OR arc-rated goggle and stocking hood.

Minimum Layer Requirements: HRC 3 requires two to three layers of protective clothing.

Minimum Arc Rating in cal/cm2: 25 cal/cm2

Hazard Risk Category 4 (HRC 4)

Minimum Clothing Requirements: In order to qualify as covered under HRC 4, an employee must at minimum wear one of the following: a multi-layer flash suit over FR long-sleeved shirt and pants over natural fiber short-sleeved T-shirt and pants, OR a multi-layer flash suit over FR coveralls over natural fiber short-sleeved T-shirt and pants.

Additional PPE Equipment: Employees in HRC 4 situations are also required to at minimum be wearing leather safety shoes, safety glasses, hard hat, hearing protection, and a multi-layer switching hood OR arc-rated goggle and stocking hood.

Minimum Layer Requirements: HRC 4 requires at least three layers of protective clothing.

Minimum Arc Rating in cal/cm2: 40 cal/cm2

Depending on the specific tasks performed, employees may also be required to wear voltage-rated gloves and use voltage-rated tools appropriate to the equipment being serviced. Whenever possible, energized equipment to be serviced should be put into an electrically safe work condition unless the employer can demonstrate that de-energizing creates more severe hazards (such as when performing work on life-support systems), or is not practical due to limitations of equipment or operation (such as during testing of live equipment). Any service that requires personal protective equipment should only be performed by qualified personnel following a documented plan approved by the manager responsible for the plan.

Petronas Carigali awards US$280m offshore contract to Petrofac

December 31st, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd has awarded a US$280 million contract to London Stock Exchange-listed Petrofac to develop an offshore early production system on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Petrofac said on its website on Thursday, Dec 30, said the contract was awarded following a competitive tender and first oil is viagra purchase canada expected before the end of 2011.

Under the contract, Petrofac will undertake the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) for the full scope of the early production system in a water depth of approximately 65 metres.

The EPCIC will comprise of a mobile

offshore production unit (MOPU), a floating storage and offloading (FSO) facility for the early production of approximately 20,000 barrels of oil per day, and all interconnecting subsea pipelines.

Petrofac said these facilities would be similar to those of the

Cendor phase I development,  also undertaken by Petrofac on behalf of Petronas in record time under a production sharing contract framework.

Silver Eagle refinery fined $1 million over explosion, fire

November 10th, 2010

Published: Tuesday, June 22, 2010 12:32 a.m. MDT

By Joseph M. Dougherty, Deseret News

WOODS CROSS — The Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division has fined Silver Eagle Refining Inc. more than $1 million following two serious incidents in 2009.

The bulk of the fines — $896,000 — stem from what the division called “willful” violations, meaning either the company knowingly committed them or didn’t knowingly commit them but was aware of hazardous conditions and acted in careless disregard of its responsibilities.

The citations also include “serious” violations with fines totaling $102,000. Serious violations are those where an accident could occur that would result in death or serious physical harm. The division also issued $8,400 in fines for “repeat” violations.

In November 2009, a leaking hydrogen pipe at a dewaxing unit Levitra canadian pharmacy at the company’s refinery in Woods Cross exploded, damaging nearby homes.

The explosion caused an outcry, not only because of the damage, but because of a flash fire that

occurred at the refinery in January 2009. That fire hospitalized four workers and led to evacuations across the city.

For the November explosion, the company’s primary insurer has paid out its coverage limit of $1 million to address the vast majority of the more than 290 claims — mostly for damage to homes — and the rest of the claims are being handled by another underwriter, said Mike Redd, Silver Eagle vice president for refining and operations.

The refinery lost about $800,000 a day after it shut down refining operations between November and Feb. 17, when a refining unit was brought back online, processing about 4,000 barrels of oil per day

into gasoline, diesel and wax.

Silver Eagle expects to pay part of the fine, though it’s too early to determine how much. A team of experts is reviewing the 153-page citation to identify which parts the company will affirm and which it will refute, said spokeswoman Cindy Gubler.

It’s a process that could take months to work through, Gubler said.

Many of the violations in the citations, which were issued April 28 but only obtained by news outlets recently, begin with the phrase, “The employer did not ensure …” The citations for willful violations state Silver Eagle did not:

 Ensure that certain buildings adequately protect employees.

Enforce the wearing of flame-resistant coveralls.

 Adequately control vehicle access.

 Follow accepted engineering practices relating to pressure vessels, policies and procedures.

 Ensure frequency of inspections and tests of process equipment.

 Correct deficiencies in pressure-relief valves.

Trina Patterson, a neighborhood resident whose home was damaged in the November explosion, said she didn’t think she could be shocked anymore by Silver Eagle.

“I’m finding out about violations prior to the blast that they did not correct,” she said.

Patterson said she’s concerned that no agency seems to have the authority to determine if Silver Eagle is safe or if it should be closed down. The Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division’s mandate is to protect employees, she said.

“The (refinery’s) lack of concern for safety doesn’t stop at the property line, which we learned in November,” Patterson said
