    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the manufacture and testing of the temporary protective equipotential bond mat used on or around de-energized electrical equipment.

    1.2 It is common practice for users of protective equipment to prepare complete instructions and regulations to govern in detail the correct use and maintenance of such equipment.

    1.3 The use and maintenance of this equipment is beyond the scope of this specification.

    1.4 It is recognized that the use of temporary protective equipotential bond mats requires additional equipment for installation and use, typically temporary connecting jumper assemblies.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
