The requirements of ANSI/NFPA 70B [A4], ANSI/NFPA 70E [A5], ANSI C2 [A1], and applicable OSHA regulations shall be adhered to in connection with any maintenance or operation of high-voltage circuit breakers.

Before performing any work in the vicinity of high-voltage circuit breakers, all conductors shall be first tested to verify the absence of voltage and then grounded using appropriate test equipment and adequate grounding equipment conforming to ASTM F-855 [A7], using appropriate personal protective equipment. Any conductors which are not adequately grounded shall be treated as being energized.
