ARC- Resistant Switchgear Tested to ANSI C37.20.7 & NFPA 70E

02/15/2011

The intent of the 2004 version of NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Work Place, is to minimize the “at-risk” procedures used by operators of electrical equipment. The first step is to minimize risk by having operators perform work with the equipment only in an electrically safe condition. The second step is to design the hazard out of the normal work procedures, and the third step is to rely on personal protective equipment to minimize the risk to the individual performing the task.
