Electrical workers engaged in the process of troubleshooting electrical equipment or testing for the absence of voltage when creating an Electrically Safe Work Condition, must use test instruments and equipment in order to complete their task. Product standards for these devices and requirements in NFPA 70E for test instruments, have changed significantly to provide safer working conditions for the electrical worker. This session focuses on test instruments used by electrical workers and requirements for the safe use and application of these devices as addressed in NFPA 70E, the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace and the associated NECA Guide.
