    For all of its groundbreaking elements, including its trend-setting design, synchronous integrated grid, and high-voltage dc transmission, by the 1980s it was looking like the plant that electrified General Electric and the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area might not make it to its centenary celebration. At that time, the Mechanicville hydroelectric station was owned by Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation... View full abstract»

    The subject of electrical hazard analysis has been recognized by a small segment of the electrical industry for many years. The petrochemical industry and many government institutions have performed research on this subject for over 20 years. For the most part, however, the electrical industry - at least at the user level - has largely ignored the subject. Essentially, the industry has reacted to ... View full abstract»

    The basic characteristic of oil and petrochemical industry processes is the use of flammable substances at high pressures and flows. Despite the strict requirements enforced to build process equipment that will be used in these industries, the high risk of accidents involving explosions and fires draws the attention of researchers because of the number of victims, material losses, and environmenta...

    Procedures alone cannot provide an improvement in electrical safety performance. Personnel who are exposed to electrical hazards must understand the basics of electrical hazards and safe work practices in order to implement the procedures. Training and qualifying your employees on these issues can be difficult and confusing. This article outlines a process for training employees on electrical safe... View full abstract»

    Electrical workers are commonly exposed to three types of hazards: electrical shock, electrical burns resulting from contact and arc flash, and arc blast. Electrical burns that result from contact with energized parts occur due to current flow through the body. Burns as a result of arc flash occur due to radiant heat given off by an electrical arc. Lastly, arc blast is the result of the heating ef... View full abstract»

    The intense energy and duration of an electric arc flash represents a very unique exposure. Everyday work clothes made from regular cotton or polyester cotton blended fabrics, regardless of weight, can be readily ignited at some exposure level. Once ignited, the clothing will continue to burn, adding to the extent of the injury sustained from the arc alone. The National Fire Protection Association... View full abstract»
