Arc Flash Images and Videos

Arc Flash pictures graphically show the power of an arc flash. The pictures in a video in particular, show what happens during an arc flash and the seriousness of the injuries.

The most common arc flash pictures and videos are those taken during research and testing. Those pictures that show actual arc flash incidents are usually captured by a security camera.  We have placed a few videos that include arc flash pictures on this page. We hope they help you understand how powerful an arc flash is, how sudden and unexpected an arc flash is, and the seriousness of arc flash injuries.

As you'll see below, in many cases people who are injured by an arc flash were not wearing the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Having electrical equipment labeled and warning workers to use PPE is a critical part of arc flash safety.

The NEC and NFPA 70E both require warning labels on equipment that poses an arc flash hazard. These labels must include either the incident energy or the required PPE, but can include more information at the company's discretion. Establish a standard design for warning labels throughout a facility.
