Warehouses, silos, and logistic operations are exposed to the electrical hazards of arc flash and electrical shock. In fact, unique risks are present when the electrical utility bill is one of the smaller budget items, as is the case in warehouses, silos, and logistic operations. This, together with the rather infrequent performances of electrical operations [...] Read More

I know it isn't a good idea to use leather rubber glove protectors for work gloves; however, I cannot find anything in OSHA or the 70E that forbids it. Other than the tag on the glove that says to only be used for a rubber glove protector and not for electrical work, there is really nothing that says you cant use it unless I am missing something. Does anyone have any additional resource that definitively says they "shall not" be worn for work gloves and shall only be used for the protection of the rubber glove?

In the absence of an arc flash study what PPE and boundaries should we advise our contract electricians to follow? 

Do you happen to know what percentage of the electrical investigations had an electrical work permit system in place at the time of mishap?
