2018 NFPA-70E 120.5 lists 8 steps for establishing and verifying an electrically safe work condition (and says they are to be performed in order).

It does NOT include what the industry calls “Try Out”, even though this is required in 120.4(B)(5) Verification, which states,
Quote:
“The equipment operating controls, such as push-buttons, selector switches, and electrical interlocks shall be operated or otherwise it shall be verified that the equipment cannot be restarted.”


Is anyone aware of any reason why this requirement isn’t integrated into the 8 steps?
