An article by Hugh Hoagland in today's edition of the American Chronicle discusses arc flash PPE and various standards that apply to PPE. The article opens by stating:

"Multinational corporations are causeing electrical safety work practice standards to become more global by taking best practices from one part of the world and transplanting them. When safety standards are global, the corporations can have the same training, engineering, and PPE standards in more countries. Multinational corporations, by international law, cannot have lower safety standards in another country without repercussions. Those companies and their workers win."

It then proceeds with a multi-national look at arc flash, arc flash PPE, and how PPE standards are becoming globalized.
