Arc Shields - Product Highlight

The updated OSHA 1910.269 regulation continues to be a hot topic in the Public Utilities industry. For the first time, the final rule has identified the suggested useful life of Arc Flash protective face shields.. 

In multiple locations within the final rule the useful life has been identified as 2 years for Face Shields. While the estimated life expectancy is not a requirement to replace at 2 years it does identify the need to replace these items on a scheduled basis. The useful life statement also will carry weight during OSHA site inspections of the issued PPE.

OSHA 1910.269
“Based on publicly available information from vendors of electrical protective equipment, OSHA estimates that a face shield costs $86.50 (with a useful life of 2 years), and that head protection such as a balaclava costs $29.75 (with a useful life of 2 years) [11, 12]”. 

The Paulson Arc Shields all come with instruction sheets with each product. Within the instructions, the cleaning, maintenance and replacement of windows or components are described. Arc Flash Shields should be replaced when scratched, damaged or exposed to an Arc Flash event. These shields are designed to absorb the Arc Flash energy and this will degrade upon this exposure. The photo below shows model AMP-10-RW. This 10 Calorie ATPV shield fits all of the AmpShield kits and see the video on the Paulson website that demonstrates how to change the window.

Asset problems solved

Apparently, there has been yet another stampede from that other platform whose name I can not quite remember, which has lead to a significant increase in imports and images.
I thought we had a few days left to fix a small problem concerning how the pathnames are handled for images (we moved past 100 million images which broke the xxxx/xxxx scheme for the naming) but due to the sudden influx of new images from blog imports of that other platform the flaw came crashing down this weekend.
It should be fixed now. I also took the time to fix the audio tags and move (new) youtube posts to the html5 embed code. I'll see what I can do for the old posts.
Also, the ad side bar (which only logged out users see on the /post/ permalinks) has been made responsive so as to not show for handheld screens.
Btw, we can now disable ads on a per-blog basis. So if you really can't wait until we have the upcoming premium-payment-thing in production, drop us a note at team@soup.io and we'll disable (the very unintrusive) ads until you can pay up ;)
Anyhow, hey there to our new users!
Also, be excellent to each other. And eat Soup.

Sorry it came to this, but we had to do something against yesterdays attack of the spammer drones, and sadly, some legitimate users got caught in the net.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
