From all of us at Paulson Manufacturing: we are excited to announce that—during the 2019 National Safety Council Congress & Expo—we will be hosting Arc Fest!

This private, invite-only event is scheduled for 4 PM to 8 PM on September 10th at the Encore Room in the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. The night will consist of appetizers, an open bar, and hourly prize drawings wit

h the highlight being a discussion led by Hugh Hoagland (CEO of ArcWear) on a topic that is near and dear to our hearts—arc flash safety.

What Is the NSC?

The National Safety Council (NSC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating preventable deaths through research, education, leadership, and advocacy. For over a century, the NSC has sought to use data-driven action to prevent injuries in the workplace, in the community, on the road, and at home. In particular, they focus on opioid usage, driving, automotive innovations, adolescent safety, worker safety, and fatigue. Additionally, they hold an annual safety conference to further spread awareness of their mission.

The NSC 2019 Congress & Expo will be held September 9th through the 11th in San Diego. As the world’s largest annual safety event, this conference offers safety, health, and environmental professionals networking opportunities and the education and tools they need to stay at the top of their fields. There will be dozens of professional development seminars on the subject of workplace safety, with session topics ranging from human behavior and safety to drug issues at work.

Why Arc Flash Safety?

arc-flash-ppeAcross industry, employees are at risk of injury or death due to a number of different work-related hazards. To minimize these risks, facility managers should invest in reliable, high-quality safety equipment.

Within the electrical industry, arc flash poses a serious risk to workers. An arc flash results from an arc fault—i.e., an electrical explosion or discharge that produces enormous amounts of force and energy, high temperatures, and intense light. The latter is known as an arc flash. When a

ny of these conditions occur, it can lead to substantial damage to equipment and facilities and significant injury to workers, including burns, nerve damage, or vision loss.

At Paulson Manufacturing, we understand the importance of offering reliable safety and protection products. To protect workers in high-risk electrical situations, our team crafts high-quality arc flash protective gear, including face shields, goggles, balaclavas, and accessories.

By hosting Arc Fest during the 2019 NSC Congress & Expo, we hope to spread awareness of the risks of arc flash and the available safety and protection solutions. We are excited to offer an engaging evening of enlightening conversation with peers and Hugh Hoagland and hope to see you all there!
