The keyword now-a-days is PPE, personal protective equipment. Every shop needs to hold their employees to a program of safe procedures. I recently viewed cuts from an electrical safety video. WOW!!! The cost of the safety equipment is much lower than even one accident. I would email or call Joe Tedesco for consulation. He is the expert on electrical safety.

The office I work has been getting an dramatic increase in requests from our clients to perform Arc Flash Calcs for them in compliance with NFPA 70E and the IEEE standards. It is going to get even more popular as OSHA makes there way around the industry. They are asking for calcs, to be able to reduce the PPE that the electricians are wearing as a result of the standardized table in NFPA 70E. Generally the calcs result in lower PPE category clothing to make it easier to work and be more productive.
