ARC Flash suits should be accompanied by medium voltage insulated products when switching in on live equipment. This insulated safety equipment protects the user from the presence of voltage whilst arc flash clothing protects the user from arc flash causing excessive heat and arc flash blasts.
Insulated safety products prevent the voltage from passing through the operator. This includes safety equipment to test the presence of live equipment and insulation equipment rated to the correct operating voltage.
That includes insulated rubber gloves and rubber boots, to protect from the presence of low, medium and high voltage.
