The Chance EQUI-MAT™ Personal Protective Ground Grid provides an easy way to help establish an equipotential zone for a lineworker to stand on during various energized and deenergized work practices.
Properly applied, it accomplishes compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 1910.269: “Equipotential Zone. Temporary protective grounds SHALL be placed at such locations and arranged in such a manner as to prevent each employee from being exposed to hazardous differences in electrical potential.”
The EQUI-MAT™ Personal Protective Ground Grid easily can be taken anywhere needed, is simple to use, maintain and store. It consists of a high-ampacity tinned-copper-braid cable sewn in a grid pattern onto a vinyl/polyester fabric. Cable terminals permit connecting the mat’s grid in series with an electrical ground and the subject system component or vehicle. Simply rinsing with water comprises all the care the mat requires. The mat may be folded and stored in a tool bag to help keep it clean and protected. Complete instructions are included with each unit.
