NFPA E70

You guys better look up this code from OSHA and get trained on Arc Flash burns and PPE. There are some hefty fines that would put a lot of one ring clown shows out of business. Basically if you are working on anything over 50v you need this training and you need to have the proper PPE. If you don't get the training and don't wear the PPE when required your and OSHA sees you, you are going to get fucked big time.

Darn, my spare spacesuit is at the cleaners. Do you think OSHA will let me pull a safety disconnect on a 3 ton condensing unit if I only have one spacesuit on the job? Must I use the helium/oxygen mix or do I have to breathe pure nitrogen while performing any electrical repairs to prevent my face from igniting? o_O

Another piece of information. There are no arc flash helmet that have a clear face shield. There are some that are being produced in China that have clear shields that will melt to your face in the event of an arc flash. Also you will need to establish a 4' perimeter around the arc flash danger area. OSHA is pretty open as to how this is accomplished. It can be another man, caution tape, cones or what ever.
Do you know what the suicide rate for arc flash victims is? 30%. On average there are 10 arc flash accidents every day in this country. Shake the dice.

ok... resi air handler in a closet in a hallway thats not lit very well.... checking for a bad sequencer... now I'm supposed to have all my unifors and drawers 100% cotton(they already are), and put up cones and tape in the resi customers hallway, wear 600v rubber electricians gloves with leather gloves over that, that will not allow me to be able to manipulate probes, and amp clamp, and wear a welding helmet so I can't see wtf I am doing and where I am sticking my hands or where I am sticking the probes??
It seems to me that this is going to be more dangerous, and create more problems than it prevents as well as more arc flashes when you short across something that you can't see through the helmet..... and doing the same drill with opening the door on a condenser disconnect, or power panel??
I could see it in commercial applications *ONLY* on 3 phase and voltages higher than 440v.....
Its not happening in a residential setting.
