Arc-Flash (also called a flashover) is distinctly different from the arc blast, is part of an arc fault, a type of electrical explosion or discharge that results from a low-impedance connection through air-to-ground or another voltage phase in an electrical system. Employers are required to mark electrical equipment with descriptive markings, including the equipment's voltage, current, wattage, or other ratings as necessary. Having training requirements for qualified persons, will provide employees the necessary information to protect themselves from arc-flash hazards so they can identify safety measures to comply with or supplement the requirements for preventing or protecting against arc-flash hazards
