Risk Assessment Example;
        Voltage is 6.6kV gives a risk rating of 3
        Task is racking a breaker gives a risk rating of 3
        Arc energy is 25 cal/cm² gives a risk rating of 3

If a remote racking mechanism is now used for the task;
        Voltage is 6.6kV gives a risk rating of 3
        Task is racking a breaker gives a risk rating of 3
        Arc energy is 3.5 cal/cm² gives a risk rating of 3
In this case the final risk is 27
From the table above, full arc
protection is required

In this second example the final
risk rating is 18. So now a
reduced level of PPE can be
worn
