The purpose of this Safety Bulletin is to establish guidelines for the usage of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI's) and portable lighting systems in order to minimize the possibility of personal injury. 2.0 POLICY AND GUIDELINES 2.1 All electric tools and equipment used in the plant shall be grounded (unless double insulated). Cord connected equipment shall either have their cords shorted to 12" in length and will be used with GFCI protected extension cords or a GFCI shall be installed on the end of the cord. GFCI's may be used to provide temporary power requirements for job task lighting, portable power tools, appliances, and test instruments in tanks and vessels, outdoor locations, or other approved locations, as an alternative to low voltage lighting, or to pneumatically, hydraulically, or manually operated tools and equipment. GFCI's may be used on temporary or permanently wired receptacle outlet systems or on separately derived systems such as portable generators. GFCI's shall not be used in locations, such as tanks, vessels, sumps, vaults, manholes, ditches, excavations, etc., which may contain standing water or other electrically conductive liquids. These locations shall be drained of all standing liquids before GFCI's are considered for use. If these locations cannot be drained of all standing liquids, job tasks shall be performed only by using pneumatic, hydraulic , or manual methods, and low voltage lighting. GFCI's shall be placed outside the entry point to the work area such that all electrical equipment, including extension cords, and their associated plugs and receptacles, inside the work area is protected by a GFCI device. GFCI's approved for use in the plant shall be UL listed, shall be equipped with neutral sensing monitors, and shall be designed such that the device automatically trips when it is disconnected, unplugged, or otherwise looses input power, and...
