Category/Level . Note that Category was removed from NFPA E task table method category table in the version. Level was removed from the incident energy PPE table in the version. The big idea is that special arc flash PPE is not required for low level hazards.

Arc rated PPE exists on a continuum and is determined during the assessment process. This could include arc rated shirt, pants, face shield, leather gloves or a heavy-duty arc-rated suit. Is the lowest PPE category now Category ? If the PPE Categories Method is used, then yes, Category no longer exists and this should be increased to

CSA Z recently added an Arc Flash PPE Category for equipment with potential incident energy levels up to cal/cm. Each category includes a minimum arc rating value for the required PPE. This value is determined by the PPE manufacturer, and indicates the protection provided by the equipment (in cal/cm) as the point where a worker would have a % probability of receiving a nd degree skin burn.

Calculating incident energy levels and arc flash boundary distances for the purpose of estimating the hazard risk category (HRC) a worker would be exposed to while working on electrical equip-ment opens a window into the inner workings of the power distribution system. Arc flash calculations can tell us a great deal about how the system will behave
