IEEE Publishes 2017 National Electrical Safety Code

IEEE and the IEEE Standards Association have released the 2017 National Electrical Safety Code (NESC). The NESC is the authoritative code for ensuring the continued practical safeguarding of persons and utility facilities during the installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply and communication facilities. Some impactful changes to the code include revised requirements for substation impenetrable fences, required consideration of Aeolian vibration for conductors, changes to accommodate new industry insulator ratings, as well as revisions to the rules in Part 4 that align with changes made to 29 CFR by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
