I am wondering who out there is using infrared thermography and how you are dealing with personal protective equipment (PPE) and the requirements of NFPA 70E?

Our company has a comprehensive Electrical Safety Program that was written based on 70E. It dictates, among other things, what type of PPE is required for various voltages and flash zone dimensions.
No IR thermography to date.
