Electrical codes, standards, recommended practices and regulations can be complex subjects, yet are essential in both electrical design and life safety issues.This book demystifies their usage.It is a handbook of codes, standards, recommended practices and regulations in the United States involving electrical safety and design. Many engineers and electrical safety professionals may not be aware of all of those documents and their applicability. This book identifies those documents by category, allowing the ready and easy access to the relevant requirements. Because these docume
