We want to provide respirators to our electrical workers when responding to no power events on customer’s. Our concern is the potential of an arc/flash event when a person performs their work. We have arc rated face shields that fit over the respirators. Any studies we could cite to support this combination?

My logic tells me if the face-shield protects my face, it should negate the hazard of the respirator potentially melting if a flash occurs. Any information to support this?
