From the very beginning of my exposure to the NFPA 70E I have been taught that if I am inside the limited approach boundary with exposed energized conductors i have to wear appropriate ARC rated PPE.  My management is telling me that only inside the ARC flash boundary am I required to wear PPE.  I have been looking through ht e 70E and all I keep seeing is that while inside the arc flash boundary is PPE required.  Can you give me where in the standard it tells me the distance I have to wear PPE.
