  It is very important to understand your workplace and the available hazards or risks in the place. We have to ensure that our workplace is safe and personally take responsibility for keeping it safe. You might be working in developed nations like the USA, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UK, United Arab Emirates Kuwait, or developing countries like India, Brazil, the Philippines, or any other nations. Irrespective of the country your workplace is located it's the responsibility of the employer to provide a safe working environment as per OSHA regulations and the responsibility of the employee to understand the available risk and follow the rules and apply the risk-mitigating techniques as per the international standards and regulations. The main hazards of working with electricity are electric shock and  burns  from contact with live parts. Injury From exposure to arcing,  fire  from faulty electrical equipment or installations. Electric shock   Exposure to Arc-Flash Exposure to Arc-Blast

What is Infrared Thermography?

Infrared Thermography is a scientific method or a process which senses infrared energy emitted from equipment, converts into temperature and gives the thermal image of the equipment. “Infrared” refers invisible radiant energy. “Thermography” refers to a method of analyzing heat or thermal energy coming out of a body.


Few Important Aspects to note About Infrared Thermography
  • It is invisible since its wavelength is longer than visible light
  • Naturally emitted from an object's temperature is absolute zero(0K) or higher
  • It has a characteristic of heating an object. Therefore, it is sometimes called a "heat wave".
  • It is a kind of light (electromagnetic wave) It can be transmitted through a vacuum
Special Features:

Infrared thermography services are provided by using Infrared thermal imaging cameras. The thermal imaging camera has a special lens which detects infrared light (heat) emitted by all objects. This focused light is scanned by a phased array of infrared detector elements. Temperature distribution image data of infrared thermography consists of a matrix of pixels (number of detectors: for example, 320 horizontal X 240 vertical pixels). Thermal image data can be transferred to PC. Subsequently, the data can be calculated and utilized freely. Thermal image data is colored up pixel by pixel based on temperature.
