5.1.3 Verifying Electrical Systems and Equipment Provisions. Check out
the equipment needed such as insulating tools, hot sticks, and grounding cables. Have
necessary safety hazard detection devices at the work site.
Be familiar with the electrical system you are working on by
reviewing the system's single line diagram.
5.1.4 Safety Hazard Detection Devices. Potential differences, induced
voltages on lines, accidental short circuiting, leakage current across insulated protective
equipment, and combustible gas accumulation can create safety hazards if not detected by
the use of proper test devices. Typical test devices include:
Operate safety hazard detection devices according to
manufacturers' operating instructions.
