|Publication Date:||1 August 2014|
|ICS Code (Protection against electric shock. Live working):||13.260|
This test method covers testing to determine the "Dielectric Strength" of dielectric overfoot and overshoe footwear. Testing is done over the maximum possible area of the dielectric footwear without permitting flashover between electrodes.
The use and maintenance of dielectric footwear is beyond the scope of this test method.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
