Has anyone explored the option to use a trench coat instead of coveralls? Especially in a substation setting it would be easier to stock a couple of trench coats instead of various sizes of coveralls. I am not sure they are covered under OSHA either.

Thanks!
Heather

Not allowed without the pants or leggings underneath. Arcs dont just shoot straight out, they do unperdictable things.

Go here: http://www.westexinc.com/

Click on video library, click on "top 10" and view clip #7 , then watch clip #9.

Then tell us if you think a trenchcoat is adequate protection.
