Maintenance as a Safety Issue

11/01/2008
There have been a lot of articles, many of them written by us, discussing the changes in Chapter 1 of the new 2009 NFPA 70E. Many of these changes were made to make 70E an easier to read and apply document and others were to eliminate slang terms or to make wording more consistent. Many of the changes add new information, however, and address concerns that were expressed in proposals either made by committee members or by the public. The maintenance of electrical devices is one such topic.
