What type of personnel protective equipment should an electrician own and use, when working on electrical systems under 600 volts?

Does OSHA have any rules related to NFPA 70E and the 2002 NEC, Section 110.16 for Flash Protection?

When will OSHA adopt more recent standards such as the NEC?

Joe, 70E is a fair document, very concise. Myself, i like the charts & tables, which is a good overview , or place to start.

T 2-1.3.4 Approach Boundries to Live parts for Shock Protection, pg 70E-51

Flow Chart, 'Hazard/risk analysis procedure flow chart, pg 70E-72

These might be a good place to start discussing this concern, note the decision making process starts at 50 Volts!
perhaps this could be scanned & posted???

I do not see why not, economically speaking, for a meager $30+ dollars 70E will proliferate the trade quicker, and not much to ask for during appreticeship.

Sparky: I took a screenshot and converted it to a jpg file. It is a little blurry but the information you describe is readable.

Thank you Joe.
How about we take a 'minimal' view, in other words, @ what voltage PPE is needed ?

Joe,
to add to your original list of Q's....

It would seem the manufacturer's elsewhere have simple isolation techniques that we do not.........
