In the interest of Electrical Safety:
Wearing Jewelry in the Field?
I have noticed where some people are wearing all types of body jewelry and when I saw a few electrical installers who where let off at a job site from a big truck near the border, I wondered if anyone has had the same experiences and what they have done?
I am sure that OSHA has some objections to this or calls for some protection to be worn if someone refuses to remove their rings.
I believe that wearing no jewelry while working near energized parts is the safest way, especially when inspecting the interior of a panelboard.
