Overview of the presentation
The NFPA 70E standard has since 2015 mentioned the term Normal Operation. In 2018, the standard stated that if all the conditions are met, NO PPE is required. We will look at this term and the limits of the term as it relates to a proper risk assessment.
Companies with non-electrical personnel will gain confidence on when this PPE exemption can be used and times it is a risky business.
What is equipment that is properly installed, maintained and has no sign of impending failure? Why are there no limits on voltage or arc flash incident energy calculations?
