The Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®Clarifies Provisions for Absence of Voltage Testers.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a trade association that develops and maintains various standards and codes designed to prevent injury and economic loss caused by fire and electrical related hazards. The organization publishes NFPA 70E, the Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace and updates the standard every three years. One change in the latest version, NFPA 70E 2021, includes new language in Article 120.5 (7) providing clarity regarding the requirements to test for the absence of voltage. This white paper examines options for absence of voltage testing, the new language, how different types of products compare, and explains how the VeriSafe Absence of Voltage Tester (AVT) complies with NFPA 70E requirements.
