Limited approach boundary

My employer is convinced shock protection PPE, such as class zero gloves in a 480 volt bucket, are required within the limited approach boundary according to NFPA 70E (2015 and 2018). After close examination of 70E, I see that is not the case. I am looking for confirmation from my peers to help explain to the management that the restricted approach boundary requires shock protection PPE, not the limited approach boundary. Refer to 130.7(C)(1) and 130.4.


The limited approach boundary appears to have never required shock protection.


Thanks for the feedback
