Question regarding NFPA 70E, I received this below from a maintenance manager interpreting that if the face is outside the boundry (with hands inside boundary) the employee does not have to wear a face shield. Any responses/suggestions?

See 130.7 (c)(1) (below)   where it states “All parts of the body inside the Arc Flash Boundary shall be protected.”  This implies that parts of the body outside this boundary do not require arc-flash ratings.  However they should still be protected from incidental contact or general electrical shock while within the Restricted Approach Boundary.
