The Iowa Division of Labor Services Occupational Safety and Health Bureau has issued citations to three employers – the city of Sibley Electric Department, Timewell and Current Electric – in an arc flash explosion last July in Sibley, Iowa, that sent five employees to the hospital. According to I-OSHA, employees did not receive training regarding the hazards of arc flash and were not wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.
