Answers from the Experts
The e-Hazard Forum
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 can't 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?

I wanted to clarify an issue that we have right now in our industry. When working in HRC 4, we know that we need to have a safety person. Regarding this safety person, can you confirm that she has to stay out of the flash boundaries and be dressed the same way (HRC4) as the worker performing electrical work?
