I'm being asked to prove to our administration whether or not arc rated P.P.E. such as AR coveralls and voltage rated gloves can be shared by a group of employees...and my initial answer was "NO", given that it is personal protective equipment that is sized by individual needs. But, I'm having trouble finding a reference specific to electrical P.P.E. The setting is that we have all of our qualified electrical persons with 12 cal/cm2 coveralls and 500v gloves...but for work above that incident energy, we have a single suit rated at 25 cal/cm2 that they have been allowing anyone to use.
My understanding is that we should not have such a practice in place...can anyone advise while I continue researching?
