What is on most people’s minds now, is “when and where can I get the COVID vaccination?” Georgia is currently in Phase 1A+ which includes health care workers, long-term care facilities’ staff and residents, seniors 65+ and caregivers, and law enforcement. The next phase will be 1B and includes essential workers, which electrical workers are classified, which should be sometime in February.

Some of the changes coming with the Biden administration will have a direct impact, while others will take time to impact businesses, but they will affect your business. What will affect your business soon is the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary OSHA Standard – Learn More

Obsoleting the Absence of Voltage Test
For over a decade, thousands of users have deployed Permanent Electrical Safety Devices (PESDs) in order to reduce their risks in isolating electrical energy. This innovation greatly reduces the likelihood of dangerous electric exposure to workers, as they re-confirm “zero voltage” during absence of voltage testing. The cumulative experience end users have amassed by using PESDs inspired the creation of a new product specification for permanently mounted Absence of Voltage Testers (AVTs). As a result, the 2018 edition of the NFPA 70E 120.5(N) also included an exception allowing AVTs to be another way to create an electrically safe work condition instead of a portable voltmeter.
