By the end of the month, Ford Motor Co. will have installed more than 100,000 current limiting fuses at its facilities in North America as part of a program to enhance worker safety around electrical equipment. The car manufacturer tapped St. Louis-based Cooper Bussmann for the order of devices.

The project, which will require work at more than 45 locations in the United States, Mexico, and Canada, will also include a short circuit current study, arc flash hazard analysis, affixing safety labels to equipment, and providing safety training and personal protective equipment to workers.
