The goal of this project is to provide AVISTA line crews with critical safety information concerning possible arc flash hazards (AFH) at each work location by enabling GoBook Geographic Information System (GIS) displays to show AFH levels. Enabling the GIS display function would benefit the linemen by informing them of potential AFH at their work location so that they can select the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
