Regards to mandatory Face Shield?
We have had arc flash study done at our facility with all electrical panels labelled per 2015 requirements. Most cabinets are under 1.2 cal/cm2, for instance:
.21 cal/cm2@18 " arc flash boundary is 7"
We are having a debate with one side saying you MUST PER NFPA70E have a face shield to open the cabinet door and to do a voltage diagnostic with a voltmeter.
The other side says you do not because we have had arc flash study and incident energy is so low on over 350 of these cabinets that a face shield is optional.
I need a specialist to chime in
