I was curious, does anyone shut down the main, before removing the inside cover? I would think this would increase safety.... even though we shouldn't be turning off the power temporarily.
I know one inspector that wear special rubber gloves, with a full face shield when removing a panel, (afraid of sparks) and even steps on a rubber mat before opening any panel. I guess you can never be too safe!
It seems to me that the majority of NEC violations are double taps on breakers, what do you guys think?
If anyone else has any safety tips, let me know.... I don't want to get zapped!
