How must protective equipment be used?

(1) Employees working in the areas where there are potential electrical hazards must have and use electrical protective equipment that is appropriate for the specific parts of the body to be protected and for the work to be performed.
(2) If the insulating capability of protective equipment may be subject to damage during use, the insulating material must be protected.
For example: An outer covering of leather is sometimes used to protect rubber insulating material.
(3) Employees must wear nonconductive head protection wherever there is a danger of head injury from electric shock or burns due to contact with exposed energized parts.
(4) Employees must wear protective equipment for the eyes or face wherever there is danger of injury to the eyes or face from electrical arcs or flashes or from flying objects resulting from electrical explosion.
