Standards for Electrical Safety in the Workplace
NFPA 7OE: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace 2018 Edition is a recognized consensus standard that addresses electrical safety work practices for employee workplaces. Employers are required to perform an Arc Flash Hazard Analysis in order to protect personnel from the possibility of being injured by an arc flash. The analysis shall determine the arc flash boundary, the incident energy at the working distance, and the personal protective equipment that people within the flash boundary shall use. Where it is determined that work will be performed within the arc flash boundary by NFPA 70E 130.5, one of the following methods shall be used for selection of protective clothing and other PPE:

1. Incident Energy Analysis
The incident energy analysis shall determine, and the employer shall document, the incident energy exposure of the worker (in calories per
square centimeters). Arc-rated clothing and other PPE shall be used by the employee based on the incident energy exposure associated
with the specific task. For information on selection of arc-rated clothing and other PPE, reference NFPA 70E Table H.3(b) Annex H.

2. NFPA 70E Arc Flash PPE Categories Method
The requirements of NFPA 70E Tables 130.7 (C)(15) and 130.7 (C)(16) shall apply when the arc flash PPE category method is used for the selection of arc flash PPE.

3. NFPA 70E informative Annex H Guidance on Selection of Protective Clothing and Other Personal Protective Equipment - H.2 Simplified Two-Category Clothing Approach for use with Table 130. 7{C)(15)(A)(a), Table 130.7(C)(15)(A)(b), Table 130.7(C)(15)(B) and Table 130.7(C)(16)
The use of Table H.2 in NFPA 70E Annex H is suggested for a simplified approach to provide minimum PPE for electrical workers within facilities with large and diverse electrical systems. In addition to the arc-rated clothing systems listed in Table H.2, other PPE appropriate for the arc flash PPE category could be required.

Standards for Workers Exposed to Flash Fire Hazards
NFPA 2112 Standard on Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire 2012 Edition specifies the minimum performance requirements and test methods for flame-resistant fabrics and components and the design and certification requirements for garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires. NFPA 2113 Standard on Selection, Care, Use and Maintenance of Flame-Resistant Garments for Protections of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire 2015 Edition specifies the minimum selection, care, use and maintenance requirements for flame-resistant garments for use by industrial personnel in areas at risk from flash fires or short duration flame exposure that are compliant with NFPA 2112 Third-party
certification of garments. Visit NFPA.org for additional information on these standards.
  • Flame resistance testing shall be performed in accordance with ASTM D 6413. Fabric samples are tested in this manner both before and after 100 wash/dry cycles or 100 dry cleaning cycles
  • Heat Transfer Performance (HTP) must be tested both in contact with the sensor and separated by a ¼" spacer from the sensor with a minimum HTP rating of 3.0 for "contact" and 6.0 for "spaced"
  • Coveralls made to a standard pattern from candidate fabrics are tested for overall flash fire exposure in accordance with ASTM F1930.
  • The average total predicted body burn must not exceed 50%
