Vimpex's Hydrosense water leak detection system has been installed in Dublin Airport’s new Visual Control Tower (VCT) to protect the new state-of-the-art facility from water ingress, which could seriously damage electrical, communication and computer networks.
For many decades, flame-resistant clothing has helped to reduce the risk of severe burn injuries to workers. These types of garments are either made from treated cotton or, more often nowadays, self-extinguishing materials – both of which provide managers with a reliable option for keeping their teams safe.
Fluke has published the results of its second annual electrical safety survey, which revealed a disconnect between the importance of safety and the practice of safety in the workplace.
In industries working around high- and low-voltage electricity, the importance of PPE is widely recognised, and the latest safety requirements are understood by managers and operatives alike. However, the dangers posed by an arc flash are not so well known in comparison.
Nothing captures people’s attention more than a good show. Add fire or explosions and people will give you all their attention. Therefore, it is not surprising why the industry focuses on electrical safety for arc flash. It is a showstopper – with its 19,400°C (or more) of heat, capable of destroying a business and the lives of anyone in its path in just a tenth of a second.
