Code updates happen for one main reason:
safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical
Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety
for service entrance panels to a new level.
The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock
protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized
conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection
device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in
a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain
energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With
these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are
better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all
panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However,
barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not
recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.

This ExecBlueprint provides practical advice for developing such a code that will go beyond “window dressing” and inspire leaders and employees alike to build and sustain a compliant and ethical culture. While acting ethically is important for its own sake, the authors also provide pragmatic reasoning for fostering such a culture: ethical organizations earn the trust — and loyalty — of employees, customers, and investors. Accordingly, the code should be simple to understand, widely circulated, and aggressively enforced. But most importantly: adherence starts at the top.
