Insulated tools are beginning to emerge as a result of electrical safety related work practice 1910.3310.33 OSHA standards, to safeguard personnel as well as equipment that is susceptible to shorting out and creating spiking surges to electronic apparatuses. Compliance with these standards will reduce the number of electrical accidents resulting from unsafe work practices by employees. OSHA has enacted laws making it mandatory for the electrical industry to develop and implement safety procedures, provide safety equipment, and train employees who are exposed to 50 volts or more to ground.
The insulating material used is impact resistant and flame retardant. Two-color insulation makes inspection easier which adds to the overall safety. If the yellow under layer is showing, the tool may no longer be insulated properly and should be considered for replacement and removed from service in the field. With OEL you get the largest amount of 1,000 volt AMERICAN MADE insulated tools in the world.
