Long timer's have heard me discuss it before- working in hi rise buildings, and other commercial buildings, is a higher danger environment when encountering not only higher voltage levels present than in dwellings, but also the increased output size of the supply transformers present means a much higher ability to deliver amps in a short circuit. So in short- young people in the trade- pay more attention if your boss puts you into a hi rise situation. Same goes for any type of building of course, malls, gyms, etc, . The voltage levels are higher and the risk of arcing fault burn is increased in that situation than what you are used to if you have only worked in residential settings before. Stay safe. http://www.mikeholt.com/dailycodetipcalendar.php

Maybe someone should make it code that the over current protection device should limit the circuit to class 0 arc flash. That would be alright in my book.
