“When you’re working every day to make the electrical industry a safer place, it’s easy to get wrapped up in your work,” says Ashley McWhorter, President of CBS ArcSafe, Inc. “But moments like these give all of us—engineers, technicians, and workers— the opportunity to catch a breath and appreciate what our jobs mean to the larger electrical industry. From all of us at CBS ArcSafe, thank you, Occupational Health & Safety magazine, for recognizing our team’s hard work.”

A panel of judges considered criteria such as overall value, innovation, design/style, ease of use, durability, and quality when evaluating the contest entries. “I believe these awards, which are now in their fifth year and are judged by an independent panel of veteran safety professionals, recognize outstanding new products from across the spectrum of the U.S. safety and health industry,” says Jerry Laws, Editor of Occupational Health & Safety magazine. “The growth and breadth of this annual contest serve as recognition that leading manufacturers continue to introduce more and more exciting and innovative protective products for this country’s workers.”

The CBS ArcSafe® RSA-12A provides remote CHARGE, CLOSE, and OPEN operation of all DS-type circuit breakers with either manual or electric charging mechanisms from up to 300 feet away from the equipment. Ideal for remote operation in hard-to-access areas, the lightweight, portable switch uses magnetic latching mechanisms that do not require any modification to the breaker.

In 2012, Electrical Construction & Maintenance (ECM) magazine named CBS ArcSafe’s RRS-3-VB Remote Racking Device product of the year. During the same year, five other CBS ArcSafe remote racking and switching products were named Product of the Year finalists by Plant Engineering magazine.
