1 Personal Protective Equipment ( PPE ): All PPE worn on IPL job sites must have ANSI and/or approval ratings. Hard hats and safety glasses with side shields (including prescription eyewear) shall be worn at all times while on the job site, except while in facility offices. Contractors must ensure that employees working under their control comply with the following: I. General Requirements (Final) A. It is the responsibility of each employee to inspect, care for, use correctly and maintain the condition of any PPE issued to them. Defective equipment shall not be used. B. PPE shall be worn when required by job procedures and according to manufacturer's instructions. Such PPE prescribed by normal job activities is generally the minimum required protection. Additional protection may be required for certain jobs. C. Flame-retardant clothing shall be worn any time work is performed on or near any energized conductors or apparatus or when working within electrical clearances of those conductors or apparatus. D. Any employee who is exposed to the hazards of flames or electric arcs shall not wear clothing that, when exposed to flames or electric arcs, could increase the extent of injury that would be sustained by the employee. Clothing made from acetate, nylon, polyester or rayon, either alone or in blends, is prohibited. Where protective clothing is not specifically required, each employee's personal attire shall conform to accepted IPL standards. E. When work is performed within reaching distance of exposed energized parts of equipment, each employee shall remove or render nonconductive all exposed conductive articles such as key or watch chains, rings, wrist watches or bands, unless such articles do not increase the hazards associated with contact with the energized parts. F. Contractors are responsible for studying the conditions under which employees under their control work in order

2 to determine and correct any clothing hazards which may exist. G. Shirts must be tight at the waist and properly fastened. Where any arcing hazard is present, or when working from, or during ascension to or from, any elevated height, sleeves must be worn at wrist length and fastened; provided that these requirements shall not apply to "working steel" (towers) under dead conditions where protective grounds and hold cards have been placed H. Loose clothing, loose gloves, rags, loose fitting jackets, open sleeves, etc. shall not be worn while working close to rotating equipment I. Employees working over, on or near water where the danger of drowning exists shall wear U.S. Coast Guardapproved life jackets J. Metal jewelry and the conductive parts of clothing, pens, pencils, etc. are potentially hazardous items when working on switchboards or equipment control terminations. These items shall be covered or removed while working on any control wiring. II. Eye And Face Protection A. Safety glasses, goggles, face shields and/or combinations of this equipment shall be worn any time there is danger of exposing the eyes or face to hazards such as, but not limited to, flying particles, ashes, caustic substances, rust, wood particles, harmful light rays or any conditions considered hazardous by the employee or the IPL Contractor Representative. B. Safety glasses or safety glasses in combination with a face shield shall be worn: 1. When working on any energized conductor or equipment, or when working within the established minimum safe-working clearance of exposed energized parts. (Final) - 2 -

3 (Final) Any time a power tool is used. Grinding-type operations (or any other operation creating flying particles) require goggles or safety glasses worn in combination with a face shield. Safety glasses, even those with side shields, are not sufficient eye protection for grinding operations. 3. While installing or removing kilowatt-hour meters. 4. While switching electrical equipment such as disconnects, cutouts, etc. 5. Any other procedure or condition that could result in eye injury. C. Persons in the immediate vicinity of operations or work where these hazards exist or could exist, whether directly engaged in the work or not, shall also wear appropriate eye and/or face protection. III. Foot Protection A. Protective footwear shall be worn at all times during working hours. Footwear requirements include safetytoed shoes that meet ANSI Z41 standards and have ratings of I/75, C/75 and a defined heel of at least 3/8". When extreme cold weather conditions exist (such as frostbite) that present a greater hazard to an employee's feet than other usual hazards, insulated footwear such as "Mickey Mouse" boots may be worn in lieu of standard footwear. B. Metatarsal guards shall be worn in addition to required footwear when job conditions make additional foot protection necessary, such as when operating a pneumatic hammer. IV. Hand Protection A. Contractors shall assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or likely to be present, which necessitate the use of hand protection. If such hazards are

4 present, or likely to be present, the Contractor shall: 1. Select and ensure that each affected employee under its control use the type of hand protection that will protect the affected employee from the hazard identified in the hazard assessment. 2. Verify that the required workplace hazard assessment has been performed by submitting to the IPL Contractor Representative a written certification that identifies the workplace evaluated, the person certifying that the evaluation has been performed, any hazards identified and the date(s) of the hazard assessment. B. Only work gloves in good condition, free from holes and fraying, shall be worn. C. Gloves shall not be worn when there is danger of their being caught in moving machinery or rotating parts. D. Leather protectors are not to be worn as work gloves. They are to be used only for the protection of rubber gloves. V. Head Protection Hard hats must meet ANSI Z89.1, Type 1, Class E&G standards and shall be worn at all times while on the job site. VI. Hearing Protection A. Protective hearing devices shall be worn in areas designated as requiring the use of this equipment. B. Employees shall wear ear protection when operating equipment that produces loud noises, such as chipping guns or air tools. VII. Respirators A. Respirators or dust masks shall be worn by employees (Final) - 4 -

5 whenever atmospheric conditions warrant their use or when required by the IPL Contractor Representative. B. Respirators shall be worn by employees when removing asbestos or when working with molten lead. Fit testing shall be completed and documented as required. C. Dust masks shall be worn when drilling concrete. VII. Rubber Gloves, Sleeves and Blankets A. Rubber gloves, sleeves and blankets shall be selected and used based on application and according to the following table. All rubber goods are marked with the class designation. Gloves rated higher than the required level of protection may be used at any time. NOTICE: Only gloves meeting the requirements found in D (re-approved 2000) Standard Specifications for Rubber Insulating Gloves may be used for protection against electrical shock hazards greater than 50 volts. Leather gloves/protectors do not meet the D requirements and are not allowed as the sole means of protection for voltages greater than 50 volts. At a minimum, class 00 rubber gloves shall be used for jobs where leather gloves were used in the past for "electrical protection" below 500 volts. Any voltage over 500 volts phase to phase is considered primary voltage and class 2 or higher rubber gloves shall be used. For voltages over 500v phase to phase, the rules contained in the Contractor Health & Safety General Terms pertaining to the appropriate primary voltage will apply. (Final) - 5 -

6 Class Label Color Maximum Exposure Voltage Allowable per Proof Test Voltage (AC) 00 Red kV 0 Red kV 2 Yellow 17,000 20kV 3 Green 26,500 30kV 4 Orange 36,000 40kV B. At a minimum, rubber gloves and sleeves shall be inspected by the employee at the beginning of each work shift before being used and more frequently if required. Gloves shall be air tested. Gloves shall also be turned inside out and visually checked. C. Leather protectors shall always be used when wearing rubber gloves. To avoid foreign materials in gloves, leather protectors and liners shall be used only for protection of rubber gloves and are not to be used for any other purpose. If leather protectors become dirty, contaminated (inhibitor, grease, gasoline, etc.) or damaged (burns, cuts, etc.) where damage could occur to rubber gloves, the protectors shall be discarded. D. When a defect is found in a rubber glove by an employee, the thumb of the glove shall be cut off and the glove shall be turned in immediately to the Contractor Supervisor. If a defect is found in any other rubber good, such as sleeves or blankets, the defective rubber good shall be turned in immediately to the Contractor Supervisor. E. When not in use, rubber protective equipment shall be protected from mechanical, ultraviolet and chemical damage. Such equipment shall always be stored separately in the container provided and no other items may be stored with them. (Final) - 6 -

7 F. Class 2 rubber gloves and protectors shall be worn when performing such tasks as using a hot stick, cutting primary cable, using a Statiscope, using a spiking tool, or when placing protective grounds. G. The use of rubber goods which have not been tested within the time periods set forth in the chart below is prohibited. Item maximum time between tests gloves 6 months sleeves 12 months blankets 12 months H. Meter installers shall wear appropriately-rated rubber gloves and protectors for the work performed. I. Appropriately-rated rubber gloves shall be used when working voltages greater than 50 volts phase to ground if insulation from contact by other means is not provided. Leather gloves provide no tested isolation from electrical contact. For voltages over 500v phase to phase, the rules contained in the Contractor Health & Safety General Terms pertaining to the appropriate primary voltage will apply. J. Appropriately rated rubber gloves shall be worn in damp or wet conditions to work on any energized equipment. (Final) - 7 -
