The quote below indicates someone still doesn’t understand NFPA 70E.  Using labcoats doesn’t comply with the standard and is typically a poor choice for electrical safety.  Why flame resistant gloves mentioned and no rubber gloves (unless they already had them in place).  Leather would have probably been a better choice on arc flash gloves.  Depends on the leather but leather could have saved them millions system-wide.  Good to see them improving the program.
