Both the NFPA 70E and CSA-Z462 2021 updates incorporate new technology and practices that may not be noted in regulations or other standards. One area where technology has been incorporated to stimulate innovative solutions is absence of voltage testing. The Absence of Voltage Tester (AVT), is a permanently mounted solution that makes testing for an absence of voltage safer and more efficient. It is important to monitor changes to standards. Each new version builds on the latest technologies and work practices- providing opportunities to increase safety.
