Understanding Personal Protective Grounding in Substation

This month’s Featured Technical Paper is from the Proceedings of the 2017 International Conference of Doble Clients. The paper is titled: Understanding Personal Protective Grounding in Substation.

Abstract

This paper compares the dangerous “old” work methods of only using grounds to protect the worker with the correct and safe method of using Personal Protective Tripping Grounds and Bonding Jumpers in substations to protect workers.
 
Presenting real-life scenarios will reinforce the fact, and the potentially fatal consequences of, current taking ALL paths to ground. Finally, we will describe how to remain in compliance with the new OSHA regulations by building and working safely within an equipotential zone (EPZ).
