OSHA has issued a new ruling that effects those organizations that need to protect workers from arc-flash protection. While it is primarily directed at Power companies, it can also be applied to environments where working with electrical equipment could cause an electric arc-flash. The risk to workers are severe burns and even accidental death.
Is your company even thinking about this ruling?
The long-overdue final rule updating a 40-year-old standard will save nearly 20 lives and prevent 118 serious injuries annually. Electric utilities, electrical contractors, and labor organizations have long championed these much needed measures to better protect the men and women who work on or near electrical power lines.

To be on the safe side, why not just use plastic non-conductive Id badge clips? They are non-conductive and could help prevent the type of accident that highlighted by OSHA. Why risk injury or death of an employee.
