2.0602.1 Static Electric Shock

Topic: 
Electrical
Subtopic: 
Electric Hazards
Desired Outcome: 
Prevention of static electric shock to the insulation installer when using rigid tubing
TitleSpecification(s)Objective(s)
2.0602.1a
Rigid fill tube

Rigid fill tubes will be made of a material that will not hold an electric charge, such as Schedule 40 PVC Electrical Conduit, or be grounded

Prevent injury to the installer

2.0602.1b
Metal coupler grounding

For an additional level of protection, the metal coupler on the hose will be connected to the grounding wire

Grounding wire will be connected to the grounding rod

Grounding rod will be driven into the ground a minimum of 8' when possible; grounding wire will be connected in compliance with local code and authority having jurisdiction

Divert static discharge of electricity to ground instead of installer
