Part 40 Utility Workers – Electrical

Explanation of Rules Referenced from the ECUC, Second Edition

Rule 4-120 Work on equipment below 750 V

Rubber gloves with leather protectors are required when workers work on or near exposed electrical equipment or lines operating at voltages between 300 volts and 750 volts, AC or DC. Being energized, the equipment or lines have not been isolated or grounded, and therefore present a potential hazard to workers. Standard work practices address work done on 120/240-volt circuits.
