Not a webinar but thought this article might be useful covering arc flash reduction including equipment, regulations and the National Electrical Code. The article is by Eaton and covers specifically energy reducing maintenance switching including its purpose, how it works, solutions, comparisons, benefits and more. It also goes into PPE requirements for worker safety.
