This product complies with standards that are intended to protect against arc flash in most situations that arise during normal use. There may be exceptional cases in which even the best protection is not enough to prevent the harm caused by arc flash or the related effects, although the product meets statutory and industry specifications, the use of this product does not guarantee that the product will provide complete protection in those exceptional cases. If you are in doubt or do not fully understand these limitations, contact the manufacturer for full information. The product may be returned to the supplier if you are not willing to accept a product that is subject to the limitations set out above.

WARNING: Safety precaution
Electrical switching where transformer oil is a potential safety hazard must employ two workers for the task, working in a buddy system. The switching worker inside the arc flash protective boundary must be clothed in this Survive-ARC® Hot Oil Arc Flash Protective Suit. The second worker (buddy) clothed in full body FR PPC and PPE and armed with a powder fire extinguisher, must be on standby outside the arc flash protective boundary at a safe distance from a potential arc with hot oil splash – this can involve standing behind a protecting screen. In the event of an electric arc flash, the buddy worker must as soon as possible, but within 10 seconds, extinguish any flames that might be on the arc flash suit of the worker that has performed.
