There are several regulatory standards that necessitate the use and testing or replacement of in-service rubber insulating equipment to protect workers from electrical hazards. OSHA workplace rules make the use of rubber insulating equipment mandatory, even when the smallest potential of contact (with 50 volts AC or higher) exists. These rubber goods must be periodically tested to ensure the products maintain their integrity when exposed to a full range of voltages. Regardless of the heavy fines, serious injuries and deaths that occur from electrical incidents, compliance continues to remain an issue. What's even more shocking is that many workers are not using rubber insulating equipment because they simply don't know they need it.
The reality is that EVERY SINGLE FACILITY HAS A NEED FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY - whether the company is a larger facility with building engineers overseeing distribution, or a smaller facility with maintenance staff working around floor or wall sockets. There are quite a large number of possible end users. As such, awareness is paramount. Not only about the requirements for use, but also about the requirements for in-service use, inspection and testing of electrical protective equipment.
