Hackettstown, N.J., March 1, 2011—Almetek is launching their new line of fully customizable arc flash hazard signs and pressure sensitive labels. The new product line can be customized to feature specific PPE levels, company logos, graphics, text, photos and more.

Over 10 OSHA reportable arc flash related incidents occur every day, several involving fatalities. Section 110.16 of the NEC 2002 code requires switchboards, panel boards, industrial control panels and motor control centers to be clearly marked to warn personnel of the potential electric arc flash hazards. Almetek offers signs and labels in a variety of styles including aluminum, polyethylene, fiberglass, lexan and pressure sensitive vinyl that will clearly get the message of safety across.

Failure to properly alert and educate staff on arc flash safety can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines to a company, and serious injury or death to an individual. Make sure that all equipment that presents risk is properly marked today.
