As a company, we're trying to comply with the new Arc Flash PPE rules and NFPA-79.

Are there any 60VAC "Voltage-rated gloves"? The lowest rated ones I can find are 2000VAC and are too big and clunky to work efficiently in. We never work on anything over 480VAC.

The way I read the rules you need to wear "Voltage-rated gloves" anytime you're doing a voltage test (above 50VAC). Is this how everyone else is (should be) doing it?
