electricians really benefited from this program. This was the best
training I have ever had."
"We were very impressed with
the NFPA 70E Arc Flash presentation conducted by The
Hilgeman Group. The training truly reinforced the dangers
associated with live electrical work. After seeing this
training, there shall be a new approach to performing hot
work at our company."

"After attending The Hilgeman Group's arc flash safety training at
Hallmark I would have to say that this is "hands-down," the most
impactful safety training I have ever attended. Even though I am
very well versed in the importance of arc flash safety, I left the
training with a much greater appreciation for the importance of
wearing the appropriate arc flash PPE and the value of our arc flash
program at Hallmark. The other trainees (safety professionals,
engineers, maintenance workers, etc.) were extremely impressed with
the training because of the "credibility" factor and real life
accident investigation experience that Larry brought to the
training. Hallmark will definitely be working with The Hilgeman
Group for future training and arc flash consulting needs."

What is an Arc Flash?
An Arc Flash is a dangerous condition associated with the explosive
release of energy caused by an electrical arc due to either a phase to
ground or phase to phase fault. This fault can result from many factors,
including dropped tools, accidental contact with electrical systems,
build up of conductive dust, corrosion, and improper work procedures.
NFPA 70E requires the following elements:
Flash Hazard Assessment (Annex H Methodology and/or Engineering
Calculations) of the entire operations.
Determination of applicable flash and shock boundaries for each
of all applicable electrical enclosures based on the findings of the
arc flash hazard assessment. The labeling must specify the arc flash
hazard category, flash boundary and shock boundary.
determinations based on the potential energy exposure levels
