Electricians and technicians are always faced with danger while working with electrical lines. One of the most dangerous type of electrical hazard is that of an arc flash, a dangerous condition associated with the release of a large amount of energy (light, electric, and sound), which is caused by an electric arc. The potential dangers include severe burns, permanent hearing loss, damage to eyesight, inhalation of toxic gasses, and injuries due to the ejection of materials. As a result, it is important for these workers to be equipped with proper protective equipment. Flash arc protective equipment consists of shirts, jackets, trousers, overall covers, switching suits, helmets, gloves, and glasses.

To deal with arc flash, safety standards have been set to define what kind and specification of protective clothing is required for a specific category of arc flash. But due to a lack of proper knowledge and being overly conservative and protective, PPE protection levels will be set higher than necessary. This leads to the use of extra suits and equipment, which makes it hot to work with and also compromises on visibility. Sometimes it may be impossible to perform certain tasks or make the tasks more dangerous. To tackle this problem, either innovation in the suit standard is required, or an extension of service to educate the customers may also solve the problem. Technavio also provides customized research report to the client to help them understand the specific geographic market or specific segments better.
