The primary focus of NFPA 70E is the establishment of an electrically safe work condition. Equipment is fully de-energized and cannot be re-energized while work is being performed. The following steps should be followed to create an electrically safe work condition:
- Determine all possible sources of electrical energy to the equipment.
- Interrupt load current and open disconnecting devices for all sources.
- Where possible, visually confirm that disconnecting devices are open.
- Follow appropriate lockout/tag-out procedures.
- Verify that equipment is de-energized using a voltmeter. Until equipment is tested, assume that it is still energized.
- Use grounding devices where the possibility of stored energy or induction exists.
