Arc blasts is a common hazard in the electrical industry. I knew that but I was still surprised to read the statistics that in the US approximately 10 arch blast explosions happen daily, yes, daily! These arc blasts cause serious injury or death.
CNA has produced a three-minute video called "The Unknown Hazard to Electricity" for electrical contractors. The video shows a CNA customer who suffered an arc blast but survived it.
