Army Hires Eaton to Boost Electrical Safety

February 18, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

Eaton was contracted by the US Army Corps of Engineers to provide electrical safety studies across the Winn Army Community Hospital and 18 clinic buildings located at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia.

Eaton’s electrical system safety studies will include in-depth analysis of possible risk associated with arc flash hazards and short-circuit fault currents, and improved device coordination for greater system reliability. The arc flash studies will help the Army meet the latest Occupational Safety and Health Administration safety regulations, effective in January 2015.

To supplement the studies, Eaton safety experts will also provide updated arc flash labeling along with electrical and arc flash training courses to help maintain a high standard of electrical safety at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
