This book covers basic provisions for safeguarding of persons from hazards arising from the installation, operation, or maintenance of 1) conductors and equipment in electric supply stations, and 2) overhead and underground electric supply and communication lines. It also includes work rules for the construction, maintenance, and operation of electric supply and communication lines and equipment. This book is applicable to the systems and equipment operated by utilities, or similar systems and equipment, of an industrial establishment or complex under the control of qualified persons. This book consists of the introduction, definitions, grounding rules, list of referenced and bibliographic documents, and Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the 2007 Edition of the National Electrical Safety Code.
Adopted in all 50 states, NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code has saved untold lives with comprehensive requirements for electrical wiring and equipment. When the Code advances to incorporate new technologies, you can't afford to fall behind! You need the 2011 NEC to safeguard people and property, and avoid violations.
Thoroughly updated to reflect the 2017 National Electrical Safety Code® (NESC®), this authoritative resource explains the principles and practices of electric transmission and distribution line construction, operation, and maintenance. You will get comprehensive coverage of the newest equipment, techniques, and procedures along with current OSHA, ANSI, and ASTM regulations. Throughout, detailed illustrations and photos make it easy to understand the material, and self-test questions and exercises reinforce key concepts.
