The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited ASARCO, an Arizona metal smelting company, almost $300,000 in penalties related to an arc-flash event that resulted in three workers receiving severe burns. Based upon a survey conducted earlier this year by Littelfuse, incidents like the one in Arizona are happening more often because of lack of training or lack of arc-flash hazard assessments.
